This thread is starting to gather inappropriate debris generated partly by people who never knew Buz, but also by posters who ought to know better.

Perhaps it is time to close it.


Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison.

If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. Frederick Douglass

Seconded. If your join date is after Buzz passed, you should refrain from commenting on that thread. It was meant as a means to say good bye.

I'm one of those posters who should've known better--it was a classic case of responding to a post without attending to the thread topic.

I apologize to all for that, especially Buz and his family.

I agree the thread should close.
