A sweet, gentle man who loved science fiction and trains, and knew an enormous amount about both. There's a nice article about him, with an oldish photo (though as I remember, he ALWAYS wore that jacket), at http://2001.worldcon.org/gscithers.html.

During a precarious, busy week, worried about finances, lost ALL my bus passes. And discovered, by checking my TransLink use online, that somebody else has been using them. *&)*(&)&#&*#&*). Turned off the Translink. The BART pass, however, and the monthly Muni pass, are lost causes. I have approximately $2.83 to my name; this will get me home tonight, but not back to work tomorrow. My mailing address is ON the Translink card; clearly the thief didn't care.
