The outpouring of well wishes for Terry from readers of this site has been wonderful to witness and facilitate. Thanks to everyone who has written for making Terry feel loved and making me feel useful! Once in a while, it’s good to be messenger. Terry’s doing well, misses the blog, and expects to be able to go home soon, though we don’t yet know when. He answers the phone in his hospital room as businesslike as ever–“Terry Teachout”–and approves of the art on the walls (a Milton Avery print in particular). In other words, he sounds very much like himself. He’s been so glad to hear from you all. I’ll tell you more as I know more.
