A most annual Dr. Abraham Makofsky Memorial Day shout-out.

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, volunteer for the American Friends Service Committee, academic and finally, near the end, short story writer. He was one of a kind. He is missed. And if you are so inclined please take a moment to read his obituary, because he should be remembered, he is here, and we appreciate the indulgence.

Nice story. You're lucky to have known your grandfather, who sounds like he was a very fine man - both of my grandfathers passed away before I was born. And if I had my act together yesterday, I would have dug up and posted a photo of one of my grandfathers in his WWI Army uniform.

I think it's brilliant because I think it's true. It is summed up by this quote from Professor Bem who invented it "we learn what we believe as we hear ourselves talk.
