Brian The Great, as we call him in our professional circles.
I also call him Brian The Bright.
All his papers, his book, his Reports are always very distinctive.
You may read his article yet without knowing who is the author. And in process of reading you will have a feeling it was written by an absolutely outstanding Author, unique and unrepeatable. You will check -- YES! This is Brian; who else can be that bright.
Thank you, Brian.
Thank you for your working among of us. For giving us an example to follow. For your setting the highest professional standards.
