    Dear Michael, I am touched by your thoughts on what it all means. You are an eloquent writer. Thanks! Best wishes, Steve Gosch

    PS. I had hoped that our paths might cross at the Left Forum. However, a recent household mishap involving a heavy table that I should not have tried to move down a narrow stairwell has left me on crutches and unable to travel to NY. My injury is healing but not soon enough to be at the LF. Perhaps next year.

    Dear Michael,

    Do you ever think about how others will remember you? “Achievements” do not appear high on your list of reflections but yours are undoubtedly substantial. I for one will never forget—and, indeed, will strive incessantly to share far and wide—your labors as agitator, editor, writer, and intellectual. Above all is Cheap Motels and a Hotplate itself: an illuminating journey and beautiful story you have never stopped weaving on the pages of this site. I think you have written some of the most thoughtful reflections on topics ranging from intimacy and grief to theory and struggle—you deserve thanks!

    I would be delighted to have the chance to share some of these remembrances with Tatiana. I imagine she will be pleased to be reminded that you struggled for her generation passionately, and with utmost sincerity.
