Anyone knows what happened to him/his commentaries? The last edition is April/May.

I hope he is well.

I was wondering the same thing. I have my Palm set up to download the latest "Commentaries" when I synchronize, and there hasn't been an update since issue 14.4. Anybody heard anything?

Well, at 90+ his commentaries can't go on forever. I'll miss him, though.

Download what is there and burn them for keeps. Buy his books to read.

If the Iron Colonel is feeling a mite poorly, well, he's earned a short rest.

God Bless this GREAT American!

He is one of the good guy's.Amen to that. Sorry never to have had opportunity to take a class with him; I envy those who have. I wrote to him once with a comment on one of his book, little expecting an answer. He replied most graciously. I was since told that (at least until recently) he personally read an responded to all his correspondence. Hearsay only, but I believe it.

I ordered his latest book, 'C Stories', from his daughter, Lindy, who is the publisher. In emails, i had said that I would have to settle for the unsigned standard edition, as funds did not permit the deluxe leatherbound edition. Imagine my surprise when my book arrived with the good Col.'s autograph on the title page. Made my day. God Bless and keep this fine Gentleman, and I do mean Gentleman.

I would believe it. I corresponded with the Colonel on a few different occasions. Very personable, but very opinionated. If you read Lindy's book "The Sword and The Spirit" you begin to understand a little more why he is like he is. I respect this man quite a bit.

About a year ago I wrote to the Colonel about something he had said in C-Stories, and was quite surprised to find a reply in the mail just a few weeks later. Sadly he did not care for my comments -- but he was quite gracious about it.

I would sign up for a 250 course at Gunsite today if I knew it would allow me to meet him at the October family reunion. Unfortunately I have my doubts he will still be around.

What a colorful fellow.

I too, had written to him, many years ago, and he was kind enough to reply.
The attitude conveyed in the letter was one of almost a conversation in person; interested, and gracious, and not condescending at all.

I suspect from a humble man, but certainly a warrior at heart. May The GREAT SPIRITbless him!

I like going back and reading some of his older commentaries. Some of the stuff in the "Archive" area are worth another look! I wish him the best.
