When SITNEWS first started out almost 8 years ago (has it really
been that long?), Peter York was one of the more interesting
contributors to Viewpoints. His letters often evoked strong responses
from folks. Many thought that "Peter York" was the
nom de plume for someone and they insisted that there was no
"real" Peter York. People even bet money who the "real"
Peter York was. I had the pleasure once of meeting the real Peter

His keen mind and sharp pen will be missed.
