I always enjoyed my visits with Russ; got a haircut from him every month. Russ was a throw back toRead More a time when there were real barbers in real barbershops. He'll be sorely missed.

I am grateful to have known Russ and will remember him with Joy!

I will miss Riss. He cut my hair from '83-'88. Always told me he would retire to Montana. HadRead More his pulse on the times and youth in particular. Memo to parents; Russ knew more about your kids than you did! For me personally Russ was a special character. A rational thinker, a sympathetic ear and one, who when asked, would dispense some very sound advice. Not just a barber, Russ was much more to many people; especially the kids of Mill valley and interlopers from Sausalito like me. Love you Russ. Drinks are on me wherever you are.

I only met him a dozen times when we were photographing the same event for different newsRead More organizations, but I always enjoyed our brief chats. He seemed like a wonderful and kind man, as well as an outstanding photographer. I will miss him.

I' m "so wicked pissed" along with you, Cate. Thanks for your personal and sympatheticRead More description of the attitudes and actions of your Boston community. Riding the Green Line past Copley will from now on give way to a silent moment or two.

You really captured the moment. Beautiful writing.

Cate, hope you did not have any friends or family directly affected by the bombing.

Beautiful eyes. May her memory be for a blessing.
Franklin Carter March 16, 2013 at 06:14 pm
She was as her name suggests. She was a beautiful girl both inside and out. I'm am so sorry for thisRead More tragedy, for her family and those who loved her. And, for those who are still in the hospital, pray they recover fully to live life, remembering it is a gift that can be taken away in the blink of an eye.

Everyone seems to be on call and connected to the hive, 24/7. Most people do not have any idea howRead More to be alone or independent anymore either, and everyone seems to be jabbering away, walking down the street, sitting in a cafe, in their cars, yak, yak, yak. Personally, I enjoy quiet, and solitude, or talking and being with someone in person. I do not enjoy being out in nature, or in a city, and having to listen to oblivious zombies yakking away about relationships, business, or anything else, and usually loudly. Yes I do hear every word you are broadcasting. And then there is safety. Not only driving and living distractedly, multitasking, not present where your body is, there are also cell towers, radiating many hill and mountaintops which I formerly enjoyed sitting upon. Now they are unsafe electromagnetic zones. Also, you are holding a lil microwave oven to your head. I'd, rater be cautious, than, Oops, sorry, in 20 years. We know not what we are doing, and we are changing the natural background levels of nature, which have existed unchanged for eons.

This is an excellent idea! I agree, No tolerance. Thank you.

...or maybe not a drunk driving level crime per se, if no one was injured. How about a clause inRead More their insurance policy that increases the deductible by, say, 500% or ??? I agree that'd cut this water to a drip! (Of course, it'd probably never make it through that heavily regulated industry!)

I miss seeing and hearing him singing out on Broadway way.

Loved his restaurant. Best ceasar salad! Delicious food, great menu, friendly nice atmosphere.Read More Thank you Pucci for providing Fairfax with an awesome place to dine for decades. God bless and god speed. Glad that Fradelizio's is carrying on the tradition. xo
