Hi Y'all, I'm catching up after languishing in the hot, humid, unconnected, dark during Gustav and aftermath. It only grazed me (as opposed to Katrina) and the local utilities were MUCH better prepared this time.
I have a comment about Dr. Asimov. When I was at LSU we had a series of forums and programs in the student union about what the future would be like. Part of that was a teleconferenced panel with 3 SF authors. I can't remember who 2 of them were but the 3rd was Isaac Asimov. He was both cogent and funny though the thing I remember best was him correcting the student dork who was moderating because he kept mispronuncing his name with a long A i.e. A si mov instead of As i mov.
I see I need to reread my Norton. This many people can't be wrong.
Finally, Bill C., you made me laugh. My brother was born in 1947 and when he turned 40 he decided he would reverse the process. So every year he sings "Happy Birthday" backwards and gets a year younger. Funny though, he doesn't look younger. lol As for me, I was exactly 6 weeks older than my husband (which accounted for no end of teasing while I was the "older woman") so when I turned 30 before him and was teased once again, when his birthday came his gift was my birthday! Let's give 3 cheers for Codgers!
