He made great contributions to the world of reason & sanity.

2. Randi once told a story.

For many years he would write on a crisp new business card every day, "I know that today is the day I'm going to die."

He figured if he died in some spectacular unpredictable freak accident, people would wonder how he could possibly have known. He did say he got bored with it after a while and stopped. Oh well.

3. He was very accessible

I received several responses from him to my emails and forum posts in the early days of SciCop.

Good man and a long life, lived well. R.I.P.

4. He didn't pass or pass away or pass on

He died.

5. Yep. I thought about that word "passed"

But I linked to brooklynite's thread that used "passed."

It's like passed to where?

I'll correct it.

6. Thank you -- glad we agree

Anyone who uses a variation of "pass" to characterize my death will get a memorably nasty visit from the Other Side.
