It was with some resignation that I handed off today’s symposium in tribute to the life of my beloved friend Kate O’Beirne for copy-editing. It’s 17,000 words. It could be ten times that length. I had to stop asking people or we could have filled a museum with tributes. There are many other people who loved Kate, many I could have asked, but we had to get posting! To family and friends and co-workers and other acquaintances, please do not feel bad or deprived of a chance. All, please understand this is but a taste for the gratitude in the world for Kate O’Beirne.
I add my own additional thoughts here, to reach another audience with gratitude.
