I've been watching with great interest the activity on the newsgroup
rec.scuba since news of the passing of Jacques Cousteau.  It is moving and
significant how many people's lives he touched.

Never met him.  Knew him only through his TV documentaries but I want to
share with you what I wrote to rec.scuba yesterday about him.

He was one of my heroes back when I was a kid and managed to stay one right 
up til his death.  Considering the other heroes I had back in the Sixties 
only Jacques Cousteau never disappointed me.

Au revoir and aloha nui loa to the great man.
