I knew Laurence (as I have said on New Apps) only by email correspondence, but he deeply impressed me as wise and friendly in all available senses. Every issue of Analysis will now lack my anticipation of seeing yet another witty and incisive piece by him. I wrote a tribute to him years ago on my songs page; my lyrics’ respect for him supercede my hapless pentium 2 audio recording.Report
