    Very sad news. My condolences to his life partner, Linda, who so devoted herself to Frank. If you want to know what love is…
    I met Frank through Bill Mandel about 20 years ago. Bill had been purged from KPFA and then continued broadcasting on Berkeley Liberation Radio–and on Frank’s internet station, on a program called “Five Old Men.”
    Frank was a delight to meet. Unable to speak he communicated through a device he had invented, a sort of artist’s palette with the 26 letters on it, as well as several common small words, such as “the,” “of,” “and,” and so forth. He would communicate by tapping a given word or letter with a pointer attached to a sort of halo around his head. You may have seen this device used by others with his condition all over the country. This alone is a great contribution to so many others.
    I’m not even coming close to describing how he communicated, as his wife Linda would “interpret” for him when necessary. Frank was a big beamer. He’d laugh and smile and grunt, smashing through all the limitations his illness dealt him. Virtually paralyzed, he ran a radio station! When we were on his shoe we got responses on the live feed from as far away as New Zealand!
    The colmo–how you say?–the ultimate, was that Frank made a big point in expressing his sexuality, a healthy balls to the wall go at life. How in hell could you be on a downer around him? Nothing stopped him, so how could you moan and groan and whine any “poor me” crap? I can’t begin to express what a positive energy he gave off, a radio station all by his own self, a life transmitter. We should all learn from Frank and just go for life every day we are lucky enough to be alive. So I’ll leave off with a vision of this untamed unstoppable lover, tapping his playful, profane, erotic rebellious ass off. Amen and thanks, Frank . . .

    DEAR DR BLOCK: Sorry to hear about the passing of your friend. Frank Moore passing is a tragedy since he seemed to be a rarity and a necessity. His presidential platform is fantastic. The only thing is I did not see where he mentioned housing which, it seems to me, with the gross overpricing of even the most meager residence, is important. How anything in real estate can be defined as something “real” for most of us is the ultimate oxymoron!! Frank overcame his obstacles with great perseverance and dignity. I did not have the same obstacles, but I was counted out in that I was sickly, awkward and poor and thus was vigorously discounted as ever being worthy of a college education by various guidance councilors! I am still trying to overcome these obstacles and Frank’s example is an inspiration.

    Since you are a Yale alumna, I thought you might be interested in what your alma matter is up to in the world of astronomy http://www.yalealumnimagazine.com/blog_posts/1612

    Sincerely yours
    William Patrick Haines

    Frank was the first, (and few still) in regards to my poetry, poems I had mailed to him snail mail (!), which he came across and asked me to record for his show. Such was Frank’s progressive and magnanimous spirit. That will not be dimmed. Just go to his sites and feel the magic. Thank you Frank,thank you.

    I wanted to thank you again for being the man your are. You have broken down many barriers for us. You made me laugh, think deeply and take risks in my films and theater. I thank you for that. Rest in Peace, Man.

    Hey Susan, nice piece on Frank. This is a sad day. I’m so glad you got to be a part of his life. He really adored you. I check in on your website from time to time to see how you’re doing. Always something interesting. Be well and keep up the good work! Hope to get to see you and Max soon. Thanks for including one of his incredible poems. It’s even more poignant now

    What a beautiful eloquent tribute. I remember some of your shows featuring Frank, including that amazing orgy with Axel Braun. What an incredible guy Frank was. Great music, hot naked women and deep thoughts – what more could you want. Thanks for sharing him with us, Dr. Suzy. YOu have the most interesting guests!

    Thanks, Dr. Suzy!

    Like your mentor here yourself, your words of tribute are
    fearless and touching.

    I especially liked the poem of his you included at the end.
    The man brought hope. What more could any of us ask
    for an epitaph?

    xo, Pacheco
