Thank you for noting this loss, Mark. I think that I'd hear Rofes' name, probably in association with GCN--a publication I respect deeply, and which i was disapointed to see ending as I came to Boston. It was good to learn more about his accomplishments in his too-short life.

Thanks for posting the notice about Eric's death. The word is going out slowly. It's such a shock and blow. I work with a gay culture magazine called White Crane and last Fall we had the chance to publish a long piece by Eric. It was about his work the last few years to start a healthy gay health movement. We were honored to publish it in our pages and online in full. Its accessible at http:www.whitecranejournal.com/rofes.asp
