RIP Jerry Pournelle

An active and engaged thinker to the very end.  Always one of my favorite reads, although his volume had slowed markedly in the last couple of years after his stroke.

Perhaps the most poignant aspect of his last blog post was its last line:

“Bye for now.”

Ave atque vale…requiescat in pace.  In the sure and certain hope that we shall all meet again.

Blessings and condolences to Roberta and his family.
