SIC TRANSIT

I have just learned that Ronald Dworkin died in England today, or yesterday, of leukemia.  Ronnie and I were at Harvard together.  I think we graduated in the same year, but I may be wrong about that.  Since we were both studying philosophy, we got to know one another.  I liked Ronnie a good deal, even though he was manifestly a classier guy than I was.  He had a quizzical and puckish sense of humor, besides being, needless to say, super bright.  That was a pretty good little group of philosophy students, including among others my friend and later apartment mate and colleague Charles Parsons.

Ronnie was eighty-one when he died.  Back in those days, that would have seemed unimaginably ancient.  Now, alas, it seems all too young.
