Great American dies

Orlin Grabbe's web page now says "We are sorry to inform you that James Orlin Grabbe passed away in his home in Costa Rica on March 15th, 2008. He will be missed, Godspeed Orlin."

IMO: He said many unusual things and was often way off the mark, but he exposed many very real injustices and unfairnesses and some of his URLs were of inestimable value, both in a scientific and in a universal way. It would still be worth looking through his personal site. At least one person, Bill St.Clair. seems to have posted an archived copy of at least some of it. I am trying to get another one as well.
