It has been a long time since I posted.

I met Carrol once for a very long talk at an Astor Place coffee shop. He was a comrade and a teacher; both of those nouns were verbs for our short time together.

He is one of those people I miss in my time away from this list.

Revolutionary greetings for Carrol!
