Richard Thornburgh,born July 16th 1932,died today (December 31st,
2020...the only day of a year when the birth year alone is sufficient
to know a person's age at death) according to the Philadelphia Inquirer
He spent 60 years,when not in public service (other official jobs
included United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania
and Under Secretary-General of the United Nations),with the law firm
known as Kirkpatrick & Lockhart when he joined...now after mergers it
is called "K&L Gates" as if a K Gates and an L Gates were the name
partners.Actually the only Gates involved was the father of the
Microsoft Bill Gates,and he had retired before Preston Gates & Ellis
(formed by the merger of his Shidler McBroom Gates & Lucas with
Preston Thorgrimson Ellis & Holman) combined with K&L.
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
