What a tribute, and a touching memorial. Thanks chilibill for your contributions to this as well. His spirit is still living in each and everyone of us here on this message board. I regret that so many today were not there when he made his movies and walk among us on this land. Though I bet many of us didn't meet Duke, we felt like he'd welcome us as a good friend.
I'm kind of glad that Duke is not here today, I think he'd be disappointed in our landscape. He was concerned in his last public interview with Barbara Walters. I saw that interview a few years ago. He expressed concern about the way things were going in this world and in some ways he was right.
I can read about his life and see his movies, and can escape from reality if only for a little while. Thank you, Duke. I am grateful for what you have given us.
Arthur, thank you for the special service.
