I knew William. I still look at Vagabond from time to time. I miss his acute perception, which could be tender as well as biting. Today I read "Another 'Pity and Horror'" about cruelty to animals. I am one who avoids looking at photos that show pictures of suffering. I donate to PETA and the Humane Society but never read their publications for the same reason; I want to help but I canít bear to see a picture of one more tormented creature.
The essay drew me in and I found I could read to the end .and then, I simply burst into tears. Nobody has better expressed our terrible abuse of other creatures. Itís worse than abuse, itís disregard. I wish everyone would read those five short paragraphs. I wish I could tell William how important his writing is to me.
Dear Nikole -- when you put this article on did you know about the show in New York right now? It's called "Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet" and work is sent from the Lausanne. I don't know if Soutter's work is included, I can't find any list of artists but it's worth going if you are in New York, don't you think?

Dear Nikole -- What a loss! I haven't read Vagabond for awhile; life has taken me on many turns, ups and downs. And now, a brief glance shows me that my favorite challenger is no longer with us. I have no advice for you, how to carry on with this amazing site but please do carry on. I will think about your question, what should the future be but I'd say it's fine if you would just highlight articles as you say.
