    You write, in your excellent piece, that "The notion that he was cavorting with hippies as a kind of descent-for-sake-of-ascent is grotesque". I knew Reb Shlomo over a period of eighteen years and not only do I think that this characterization is not grotesque, but that it is accurate and as aspect of his greatness. You take pains in your piece to show that he manifested himself in many ways. To conclude with a definitive statement like this does both him and your otherwise fine article a disservice.
