Vale, Denis Dutton - who made sure we read & listened to the best stuff

To-day the banner of Arts & Letters Daily is in black - instead of its usual red.  It announces the passing of Denis Dutton who is the same age as me. Ah, mortality!  

Whatever else Denis Dutton may have left behind, A& L Daily is quite a legacy.  

I discovered Arts & Letters Daily via Shane Maloney.  While Dutton originally designed A & L for his students so that they could keep up with essays, articles etc, it is the most wonderful resource for the miscellaneous mind. And A& L covers so much more including international newspaper and radio links. 

Thank you Denis for the hours of pleasure you have given me.
