It is a wonderful honor to be here today, to speak in praise of my hero, the great Lou Henkin. You will notice that in describing Lou I use two vastly overused words, "great" and "hero," but I use both terms advisedly. As the late John Hart Ely used to say, you don't need many heroes if you choose carefully. And along with my father, and the late Harry Blackmun, Lou Henkin has been my hero for nearly 30 years.
