farewell, I knew you not.

On the Unheard of McDonald Islands this morning, the cream of society turned out to salute the short troubled life of the enigrammatic Nobis Ralwin.

The beachside dawn funeral, in which I participated via binoculars for obvious reasons, was respectful and understated. I'll say this for the McDonald Islanders, they really know how to do things at half-mast.

Though Nobby is gone forever, I can't help feeling that he'll still be with us, in some sense.
