     I  was  saddened  to  learn  of  the death of John Lindsay.  I had the
privilege  of  working  for him briefly when he was Mayor of New York and I
have  been  a strong admirer of his since.  He was a man of high principle,
strong integrity and passionate commitment to his city and country.  He was
a fine public servant and a very good man.
