As a long-time friend of Joe and his family-at times an adopted member of the family-I take this opportunity, while mourning, to celebrate Joe's life, his generosity of love for his family and his friends, and in a special way for his students. We can celebrate his vigorous, insistent, at times, demanding, integrity in searching for intellectual and social values that are associated with his passionate commitment to his family, to all children, to the law, and to the dissemination of insight into and knowledge about the human condition. From cryptography to the study of economics, trade unionism, the law, and psychoanalysis, Joe was an imaginative, continuing explorer of knowledge and values that could protect and nurture what is healthiest, most fragile, most complex, most subtle, and most humane about individuals and their communities.
