I’ve known Sid for 20 years now, and I will miss his presence– always a source of something interesting! He reminded me very much of my father–even though his feathers may have been ruffled on the outside, his warm heart inside was always apparent. He was a staunch supporter of his ideals, encouraging everyone to see it his way and then run with it. No one could ever accuse him of fence-sitting, or being un-opinionated! He was a worthy opponent on legal issues, for which, in the end, we always came to a meeting of the minds. We had similar interests in Jewish causes, and I always learned something new from him in our discussions. He was the true exemplar of what it means to be a mover and shaker. He shook up the world for the better.
