Thanks for this, Bill. I never work for Ned, but he was legendary among those, like you who worked for him and dealt with the brunt. I had a different breed of mentor, one less accustomed to telling the turht, and could say many things, but not the one big thing about truth-telling that you are so eloquent about here.

All best,

The most wonderful obituary for a person who clearly was a major influence and a good friend.


So glad to read that Tanen loved "Resurrection" as much as I do; what a terrific offbeat film with nuanced performances by Ellen Burstyn and Sam Shepard.

Thank you for so eloquently describing Ned and the meaning of his friendship to you and so many others. He was so generous in spirit and one of the funniest people I have ever known. I printed this out last year and have kept it to occasionally read when I find myself missing him. I pulled it out and read it again's hard to believe it's been a year. Your words remind me of just how unique and complicated and wonderful he was.
