A Dr. Abraham Makofsky Memorial Day thing.
We haven't done this before, and we can't even find a photo to jpeg, but as we sit here during the waning hours of Memorial Day our thoughts are drifting to TBWCYL, Inc. spokesperson Ben Tanzer's grandfather Dr. Abraham Makofsky who not only served in World War II, but led a long and varied life as an activist for peace, community organizer, academic and finally, and near the end, short story writer. He was one of a kind. He is missed. And if you are so inclined please feel free to read an interview Ben conducted with him and Ben's mother Judith Tanzer back during another time not so different from this one, as well as, his obituary. He should be remembered. He is here and we appreciate the indulgence.
