Hi Malcom,

... Just wanted to say thanks for publicizing this. Can't
make it (I live 8000 miles away in Sweden), but will
be there in spirit. I'm one of the many people who
loved Charlie for a long time. I'm pretty sure I took
the photo of him, Jeff & Will juggling that you have
on your site.

Also a correction to an item in your blog: Diane is
not her own worst enemy. I believe I hold that honor.

Regards,

-Kevin

Thanks, Malcolm, for the update. I so wish I was able to travel to be there.
However, as you may know, I have been disabled with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
for 15 years now and of course it is quite an expense from our home near
Albuquerque.

I think it would be great if, at the memorial, you could mention my name and
the names of those who paid their respects via your mailing list. I would
suspect that most of us wouldn't be there but like me would like Charlie's
family and friends to know how many people he touched in such a wonderful
way over his too-short life. In the very unlikely event that anyone were to
ask about me you at this occasion or ever, you have my permission to give
out my contact information...

Thanks also for spending the time to have the blog as a potential meeting
place for people touched by Isla Vista over the years. As my friend Carol
Cuzner (of whom I am sure I have mentioned to you many times) agreed with me
some years back, "IV wasn't necessarily the happiest time I ever spent, in
fact at times wasn't happy at all, but it was certainly and without question
the most intense experience of my life."

BTW that sentiment includes the year I spent at KCSB-FM...

Warm regards,

Ed

Kinko's & 1970s I.V. 

For those of you who remained after the riots or came later, during the 1970s, you remember Kinko's began in I.V.... And, for a while, The Alternative was a close competitor (see some of the comments under Charlie's Memorial posting):
