Glad to see Memorials and Things of Fame is back!

I am already a few issues late in expressing my appreciation at the resurrection of Memorials and Things of Fame.

I’ve always harboured a certain attachment to this column, since not only did I create it; I coined the title (from Shakespeare) as well.

When I left the paper for what I hoped would be a career in freelance translation, I handed the column over to Mike Cox, then of CBC, now of Toronto. Mike in turn was succeeded by Mike Reshitnyk.

When the second Mike left, naturally the column disappeared, and I mourned its absence until Catherine Mills Rouleau picked it up. Thanks, Catherine, and may the force be with you!
