William J. Stuntz, 1958-2011

Orin Kerr has news of the passing of Bill Stuntz.  Bill was my mentor at Harvard, a renowned scholar, and all around great guy.  His death was expected but that doesn't diminish the sadness of his loss.  It's generally accepted wisdom that when an extraordinary person passes, those of us left behind should have boundless words of praise for that life lived.  But, as the poet Mark Strand once put it, sometimes "there is silence instead of your name."
