Another passing

There has been another pass of note in my personal life. One of my professors from graduate school has died. The man who taught me how to write obits appeared to write his own obit. The first two lines read, "February 26, 2006 Dwight William Jensen, 71, of Cazenovia, kicked the bucket February 26, 2006, following a long illness. He expected to die sooner or later, but always hoped it would be later."

He was quite a character. When a student once asked him how long his paper for class should be, Jensen said, "About as long as a piece of string."

The MU student newspaper, the very newspaper his help save, has a nice piece on Jensen.
