It was my sad duty in July to report the passing of my friend and mentor David Inman. As I wrote in my tribute - see http://www.stereophile.com/news/070306inman/ - David used to accompany Stereophile's staff on the drive back to Santa Fe, NM from the Las Vegas CES. We always overnighted at the historic El Tovar on the Grand Canyon's South Rim, where much wine was consumed. Seen here in January 1991, with me being a little worse for wear (left), is David (right) with Laura LoVecchio (middle). The torso at the upper left belongs to Ultimate AV's editor Tom Norton (http://blog.ultimateavmag.com/thomasnorton/ ), who had just joined Stereophile as technical editor back then.
