Oh, Haglund, I thought he was going to live forever. He was such a kind and witty man, not to mention how talented and generous. I'm so glad I got to see him interviewed at the Guggenheim Works and Process program--was it three years ago? Four? And to see him in his last years as the Tutor in SL and the Friar in R&J.

Mr. Franklin was in the first live ballet performance I ever saw when he brought the Stars of the National Ballet to my hometown back in the Ice Age. He certainly was fascinating for a very long time.

I'm very sorry to hear about Mr. Franklin's passing. But I'm so glad I got to see him on the stage at Met. The other ABT dancers, like Marcelo Gomes, always seemed so protective of him. It's nice that he lived such a long, productive life... and that he was able to grace the stage almost until the very end.

P.S.: Orb's win was really exciting. Such an incredible athlete! I can never resist a come-from-behind winner.

Remarkable artist.
