I've just received word that Stepan Chapman died on Monday, the 27th.  That's him up in the corner, with the stethoscope.  Stepan was a great writer and a friend of mine.  I spent very little time with him.  Not nearly enough.  I imagined I would have other opportunities to spend more time with him, but I wasn't right.  I suppose it often turns out that way.  He had a great deal more to say than he was given the opportunity to say.  I will never forget him. 

My condolences to Kia.
