Article in the Forward: LC at 80

Post by PeGu » Thu Sep 18, 2014 6:17 pm

Dear friends,

I know this article could be linked to from many sub-forums, I just felt the birthday one to be just that bit more appropriate than the Popular Problems one and all the others. :) ... -cohen-at- ... -cohen-at- (mobile read)

Best wishes from Germany!

I also liked this article. I thought it was really well written. I especially enjoyed the personal comments regarding his connections to Leonard and his work and how the two have affected him in various stages of his life so far. I also feel that he shares with Leonard a deep affection and affinity for the city of Montreal.

Thanks for posting this PeGu.

I knew the text indeed already, yet it was good to read all those things again, but I was fascinated by that very
special video on "Suzanne" I had never seen before. Thank you so much.
