Departed classmates: Burr Tweedy, Luigi Attardi

One of the least happy tasks of my role is to report on deaths within our class. You will all see in the next YAM that we lost Burr Tweedy to lung cancer this fall. Now comes news from Jomo Kwame Sundaram that Luigi Attardi chose to no longer live with terminal and very painful spinal cancer and chose to end his life “with Dignitas” some weeks ago. Jomo’s elegant words about Luigi will be included in the next YAM. Ave atque vale.
