    Default [OT] RIP Ed Rasimus

    For those of you who've been around afw for a while, you may recall the
    occasional contributions of Ed Rasimus, genial but cantankerous ex-Air
    Force pilot, poli sci prof, author and unabashed Zinfandel lover. I am
    sad to report that Ed lost his long battle with cancer earlier this year
    and died on Feb. 13:

    Sorry to hear that. I always appreciated his posts. A combined toast in his memory is required.

    Thanks Mark. Sad to hear about Ed's passing. A true character, an
    intellect, an iconic fighter pilot. Ed will be missed. The next
    infusion of zin will be in his name...

    By way of total chance, I was watching the CBS news which ran a short
    feature on the pomp and ceremony attached to burials at Arlington.

    Being the son of an ex-serviceman ( I attended the 70th anniversary of the
    Battle of Alamein in Egypt this past October - and who intends attending the
    70th anniversary commemorations at Monte Cassino in Italy next May) just
    seeing the respect afforded to ex-service people at Arlington was a
    wonderful sight.

    Rest in peace Ed

    Apropos of that observation, I don't recall if I related this story to
    you in person. During our stay in Christchurch, we ventured down to the
    remnants of the Central Business District to go shopping in a makeshift
    outdoor shopping mall made of old shipping containers (perhaps it should
    be called a shipping mall?) located just adjacent to Ballantyne's.
    After spending an hour shopping and getting lunch there, we exited via
    Cashel St. only to find ourselves face to face with the Bridge of
    Remembrance. I was gobsmacked to see it in person and it brought me
    close to tears to read the names of those Canterburians lost in the
    Battle of Gallipoli, where so many ANZAC soldiers fell. Especially
    juxtaposed on the rubble and destruction of the earthquakes, it sent the
    message that every generation has its tragedies to contend with.
