I am sad because
Oscar is no longer here
on earth. He's in heaven.
Oscar Mink, http://www.utexas.edu/education/news/minkMem.html was my favorite all time professor. He taught Systems Thinking in which he told us, in a wonderful winding tale, how Odysseus was a great CEO.
I went to a party on Saturday night where there was another Ph.D. from the College of Education and he told me the sad news. Oscar had 44 grandchildren. He was at the Christening of one of them in NM when he had a heart attack and died. I miss him. Oscar on earth is the kind of person who makes you believe there's a heaven.
