“I learned the significance of my own insignificant life.” 


Frank McCourt died today, another passing  of what seems to be an never-ending chain of famous people leaving us this month. I went to see him give a talk at the Philadelphia Library one evening many years ago and had a brief chance to chat with him. Nice man, great storyteller.

The obit is worth a read even if you never heard of the man.
