Having Heft

Received an email yesterday from Tag Evers. Among the paragraphs, I find the following, a pretty sharp appreciation of the place Cosmic Good Humor held for many of us in Madison:
I'm pretty sad over Cosmo. I miss him, for the obvious reasons, but I also feel somewhat empty and ashamed, that most of us are cowards even. There's heft to the life he lived...for as skinny as he was, he was one heavy dude. What I translate from Cosmo's life is something like this: don't be timid, don't be shy, grab life by the balls and squeeze tight.
I like the "skinny, heavy dude" bit.

Tag also has some good things to say toward the end of the Daily Page posts (about page 5 as the forum stands now).
