    my sympathies to larry and his kids. how awful. :'( :'( :'(

    larry's one of the truly good people. quick to smile or offer a one-liner. i knew him back in the day, when he covered the jets for westchester-gannett before he left for the upstart usa today.

    he'll be getting a phone call, that's for sure.

    She'd had a tough way to go, for a long while.
