Passing Note: One of Nine

     We interrupt our regular sequence of columns for a brief personal note.  Yesterday marked the passing of Scottie Lampe, a black cat who served as Alpha in his household for seventeen and a half years, teaching bipeds when cats need to be fed (often), when cats need to be brushed (whenever they feel like it), and how much of the furniture belongs to the humans in the household (none of it.)  One could go on, but we might as well close simply with the observation that it is amazing how short a period of time seventeen and a half years can be.
