Re: “A Requiem for David McKnight: Prodigy, Journalist, Politician, Homeless Street Musician

This is a wonderful tribute to David. David was in my class at Duke and was one of my best friends. He played an original composition on his viola. not violin, at my wedding. We nicknamed him "the Shadow" because he was always taking trips. He would disappear for a while and then return to re-enroll at Duke. He finally did graduate. I was there for the Senate campaign. He visited all 100 counties in North Carolina. I was also there when he worked for the Durham Morning Herald. He was a great writer. I lost track of him after I moved away from North Carolina in 1976. I am sad to learn about his descent into mental illness, although there were harbingers of that when I knew him. I am glad to know that he brought so much pleasure to the residents and students in Durham. He was truly a light in the world and he will be sorely missed.

Re: “Four Years After His Death, Jason Molina Lives on Through a New Book and a Revived Reunion

Thanks to the band at Motorco tonight. It was beautiful. I never get chills in late June during a Carolina summer, but tonight those chills came to me frequently during your wonderful set. "The Lioness" nearly caused hypothermia.
