My first Tony story happened just after the first season of his first tv show aired. He was friends with my cousin, and had just reviewed Mikes memoir (which had otherwise gone unnoticed) on Amazon.

I remember (still on eGullet) thanking him for the sensitivity with which he filmed No Reservations in Beirut in 2006, and more recently was heartened to read his defence of Argento. He brought so much good into the world. This is such sad news.
