Mallory was a true class act.
Reading through all the many words of condolence he's received, this is the one that sticks out as ringing most true to my own impression of the Mallory
I saw on the board. Fair, even, clear, definite, honourable... yes, a class act.
It makes the choice of smilie that now bears his name so very appropriate.
RIP "Ensign" Mallory
