      David Hull, 1935-2010. Unlike QiLongia, Mickey Mortimer, Trilobiter, Tim Weaselliams, and so many others who, as antisemites, posture and cheapen the promise of dinosaurology (these peripatetic fabricators are marvellous arguments in favour of voluntary euthanasia)...David Hull did science -- turning the philosophy of biology into a rigorous, exciting dialogue...even when he disagreed with Stephen Jay Gould (their debates were at the high table of paleobiological discourse) my 'hero' among heroes, David Hull maintained courage...even when AIDS ravaged the joy of his existence. 

      So many are departing.
