Re: Esther Cohen

It seems she was not merely a fashion figure, or "among the idle rich." Dick Straub is going to flesh out his description of her with some details about career and education.

Re: Esther Cohen

Does anybody know anything about Esther other than she was Victor's wife and Leonard's sister? Education? Career? Travel? Interests? Talents? Creations? The picture we are getting so far is only of her kind and vivacious personality. Surely there was more to her than that.

Re: Esther Cohen

And... there appeared to be no sibling rivalry, although Leonard was in the limelight, besieged with admiring fans, and she was living a simpler, more private life. She called him "my brother" and was glad for his good fortune.

Re: Esther Cohen

Named for a biblical queen and heroine of the "Book of Esther," Esther Cohen was a fine daughter of the source of her name. She was a beautiful and gracious lady. My condolences to Leonard and the rest of her family.

Re: Revolting News Features Hallelujah

I agree that the audio was terrible. I used a high quality Rode VideoMic, so I do not know what went wrong. It sounded better on TV than on the net, more volume, but was not crystal clear. Sylvie was the most difficult to hear, but the others came across better. Well, everybody looked good anyway. I...
