Shimon Peres

Ed says Shimon Peres was incredible.

He "doesn't have charisma" -- charisma in the standard sense in which one expects to see charisma in public figures -- "he just comes across as incredibly kind."

He came to the event on time; he mixed with the crowd.

Peres is in his mid-80s and in fantastic shape. No stoop, and "he's spry."

Wish I could have been there.
