Ken--

This not about the New Yorker article, although it was fabulous. I ran across your blog about Joan Bedinger, thanks to my sister Barbara (WTW 1976). I met Joan in her first year at WTW--1965--and did "Rebel Without A Cause" and Annie Get Your Gun" with her. I really loved her and so did everyone who knew her. I saw her in 1970 when I returned from Vietnam and again in 1972 after I left the Army and returned to Fairfax for a short period of time before moving to Vermont for undergrad school. Your blog about her was wonderful and I would have come back from Oregon (where I now reside), if I had known. I subscribed to your blog. Love you political stuff.

Stu--
Nice to meet you.

If I needed any more proof of Joan's legacy, the number of old friends and new acquaintances who have contacted me about that blog would tell me all I needed to know about the effect that she had on so many people.

Appreciate your kind words and thank you for your service to our country in Vietnam. I hope and wish that all Americans of whatever political persuasion will never forget that wars are fought by human beings who deserve our respect and thanks.
