We Who Must Be Dismayed

I thought of you when I read the news yesterday.

This is as sad as Robertson Davies.

I believe we actually have some chateau thames embankment in the house for later...

My favorite Rumpole story was 'Rumpole and the Last Resort.' Wildly funny on the merits, but also carrying that vague promise of resurrection--that the old darling [and, by extension, his creator], would never really shuffle off this mortal coil.

Mortimer, Westlake, Hillerman. These things do go in threes.

Chris The Cop

My brother back when he was drinking would refer frequently to his wife in a rare burst of genuine (if borrowed) humor as "she who must be obeyed." God rest ye, Mr. Mortimer.

M.A.Peel

Yes, passive periphrastics were familiar when I got to them in Latin (Carthago delenda est) all because of Mortimer. He will be missed

Campaspe

Thought of you when I heard, Mannion. I was, and remain, too fucking depressed to write about it.

I had convinced myself he'd make 100. And still be writing.
