GOOD­BYE TO GRUMPY

The Jerusalem Post - The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - LETTERS -

I have to say I am sorry to see “Grumpy Old Man” colum­nist Lawrence Rifkin go. If it is due to re­tire­ment, may you have a long and happy one; if not, may you en­joy it, “Grumpy” or not. IAN KEMP Na­hariya

Although I did not al­ways agree with the con­tent of the Grumpy Old Man col­umn, I al­ways ap­pre­ci­ated the high level of jour­nal­ism it rep­re­sented.

I was not sur­prised to learn that the writer, Lawrence Rifkin, was also the edi­tor of the Let­ters sec­tion, which I reg­u­larly read and to which I was an oc­ca­sional con­trib­u­tor.

As edi­tor, Mr. Rifkin pro­vided more than just a venue for the air­ing of in­di­vid­ual is­sues, but rather a fo­rum for pub­lic dis­course and ex­change of ideas.

I am sure I join a mul­ti­tude of read­ers in wish­ing him well in his fu­ture en­deav­ors. MARION REISS Beit Shemesh
