The Grand Elf

That’s what I think of when I see James Randi. He is just a wee bit of a thing. Never tall, even in his youth, and age has curved his spine and shrunken his body even more. Yet, he looms large in the skeptical community (Wikipedia).

He’s been through much in the past few years, not the least of which was cancer and chemo. He was given a clean bill of health, and he moved well this year, navigating the hallways and the stairs without pause.

At the close of The Amaz!ng Meeting, he made one concession to his advancing years: a “wrangler” would be brought on to assist him.

This year, we were all invited to a special showing of “An Honest Liar,” a documentary of Randi’s life (trailer).  I highly recommend it.  We also learned this year that his biography is in the works as well.  That gargantuan effort is in the hands  Massimo Polidoro (Wikipedia)

The clock is ticking.
