The Estimable Exile

For no particular reason I got to thinking tonight about a blogger we don't hear from any more. "Exile on Ericsson Street" was a major presence on Rochester Turning, one of the blogs we link to, in its early years. He left it to blog for The Albany Project, but we haven't seen his work there in a while.

Exile thought very differently from us on many things, but he was thoughtful, principled and fair, with a sense of humor and what seemed to us to be a generous spirit. Our public discourse locally has been the poorer for his absence.

I hope we're just looking in the wrong place and he's still active. Whatever you're doing, Exile, we wish you well.
