Re: A sad day in Paleontology

To add to the other tributes to Ned Colbert, here is an article from The 
Arizona Republic (11/25/01 - A Life Remembered, by Connie Cone Sexton):

Quoting from the article's second from last paragraph:

       On the last day of his life, Colbert sat upright in bed, stared at the
       window and started to give a lecture, as vibrant as he had been at
       40.  Minutes later, he slipped into a coma and died.
