Hi, Warner.... We both have birthdays coming up in the next week or so, and in our ninth decade we can't expect them to be the best ever for either of us. I can't tell you how sorry I am that you've had to endure so many trials in the past few months. What I can tell you, though, is that the best break of my eighty-some years was drawing you as my roommate when we went off to college. We made a lot of good friends there, together and separately, and we've managed to keep some of them to this day, But I've never had another whose company I enjoyed so much, whose integrity I respected as much, or whose brain I'd rather have access to on a desert island. I could go on at length, but I think your colleague Charlie Safran has nailed it for me and probably a lot of other contributors to this document: With Warner it's just better.
