Don's contributions and off-list correspondence were sparkling and erudite, and I'll miss them.

His signature line 'Tuz li munz est miens envirun' looks like 'All the world is my neighbourhood'. Does anyone know what language or dialect that is, or if it quotes a famous work? It reminds me of John Wesley's 'All the world is my parish'.
