I know so many of you were friends with -- or simply enjoyed posts written by -- the man you know as Woof. I know him as Ed, my former boss who became my good friend. And I'm sad to report that he passed away Dec. 1. Reading his posts here, whether written in his own voice or that of his beloved golden retriever, reminds me how extraordinary this man was. From his most excellent adventures to his most straightforward opinions, Eds intellect, moral convictions and brilliantly dry sense of humor really come through. His wife asked me to let you all know of his death. She and I both are very much aware of how much he enjoyed the camaraderie here. Ill pass along to his family any remembrances youd like to post.
