I've been thinking all day about what to say. I knew I had to say something but what more could I add that hasn't already been said.
Whenever I saw that Al had commented on any subject I knew that I had to read it carefully and school was in session. Eyes front. Here comes the straight dope. Take notes. There will be a quiz later. He would argue his point backed up by facts. He was a mentor to us all. His kind will not come this way again.
He will be missed.
