Chinua Achebe

Well, there goes another great writer.  We’ve lost many in recent years and I miss them all.  The idea that no further words will come from those pens, those keyboards, those minds, saddens me.

Of course, new writers will emerge—they always do—but I still miss the tried and true.

One of my favorite Achebe quotes:  “One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised.”  A testament to his courage and his writing.
