R.I.P.--Friends

Talk about the increasing rate of departure of wonderful people! Here is our count of just today's friends and colleagues who have left us.
   1. Bob Goheen--former President of Princeton University. Way back: he was my preceptor in a freshman classics course, and a friend ever since. Died in Princeton.
   2. Jules Dassin--great film director, husband of Melina Mercouri, friend since the 1960's. Died in Athens.
   3. David Newsom--Foreign Service Officer extraordinaire, mentor and savior at times, always admirable. Died in Charlottesville.
   4. Dith Pran--Cambodian hero, anti-genocide activist. Subject of "The Killing Fields" movie. Told me I saved his life, but the story is much more complicated than that. Died in New Brunswick.
R.I.P.
