Chris R. Tame
Wednesday 05 April 2006
The praise for Chris Tame in your excellent obituary [by Sean Gabb, 23 March] is just and right,
writes Edward Pearce. He talked and wrote so well for true liberty in a time of sleekly incremental illibertarianism. But it is no criticism of somone combining high ideals with giggling good-humour to mention a vein of mild eccentricity. It only endeared him further. He was, sadly and ironically for one who died so early and horribly, a dedicated health freak who would keep up his exercises even in company.
My wife and I recall walking, arguing and agreeing with Chris along a fairly wide pavement. We walked, he, in his early forties, kept up (and surged ahead) on his skateboard.
