Ironhand and others,
Thank you for posting these articles/essays by Larry. I only knew him through REHupa and wanted to just sit on his front porch with him and talk about everything in the Universe because all of it interested him and he expressed himself so well. He also listened well and seriously considered anything said to him in a discussion. He was not only very intelligent but he understood what he said from a passionate point of view. I always read his zine first and sat down to talk to him about what he wrote. I read his articles line by line because as Rusty said, there was so much to contemplate. Larry had insights that seemed so obvious when he said them yet didn't seem to exist before he did. I missed our *discussions* after he had to drop out of REHupa because of ill health.
I wish I had followed my instincts to drive up to his front door, sit on the porch and talk with him. Sidney Smith (1771-1845) an English wit, writer and Anglican cleric said "Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable."
"If Conan Died" is a great article. It needs wider distribution. Thanks for printing it Ironhand. Thanks also to Rusty for gathering all Larry's writings and to all of you who contributed. I loved what he did with words. I miss his intelligence, his good sense and his passion. The best any of us can do is to try and carry that flag.
