    You know, OPOL, I spent my entire life on the West Coast. I learned about Ben here on DKos....

    And now I live here in Madison, Ben's home sweet home. I always wanted to meet him. In a way few others are, Ben was kind of a hero to me. His kind of activism was something I'd only imagined was possible.

    But I'm not the kind of person to just walk up to someone and start a conversation. The first time I met Markos I was so shy I barely said three words. I never went to EVP on East Wash, where Ben often held court.

    And then he was gone.

    Thank you for writing this. I think of him often and regret not having at least thanked him for keeping watch all of those years. His work and his life were in service.
