  1. Milt Lakness has the style and personality I imagined of Teddy Roosevelt.

    More than once he showed up at Augie CR meetings to encourage us in our political activism. A generous, gregarious man who carried a lot of water for the elephant.

    May the Soul of Milt, by the Mercy of God, Rest In Peace.
