I READ the news of Robert Peterson's death while I was waiting at the Midland Road station for my train south, and the print seemed to rush out of the paper and hit me smack between the eyes. At the risk of missing the train I sent off a telegram of condolence to Carol. Common courtesy demanded it, and so did common sense. Being up in the midlands I was naturally out of touch verbally, except for the telephone, and as no one knew where I was staying that was ruled out too; and the cold, bold print was a shock. It must have shaken Carol as well, for no matter how much you detest your husband it cannot be a pleasant surprise to discover he has tumbled down a cliff and broken his neck.
