In Memorium

This week a tragedy struck UCI. Former Prof. Lindon Barrett was found murdered in his home (he had recently made the move to UCR). This was very shocking to everyone who knew him (I knew him only marginally by seeing him at talks and such on campus). But clearly, there are a lot of people I think who are still digesting the shock of having such a talented and brilliant individual extinguished so prematurely (he was only 46.) You can see from the tributes to him popping up on the web that he had a profound effect on many many young scholars.
