Re: Eric Jackson, WGBH jazz host
I remember Eric in the Evening very well, but not being a fan of the style of jazz he preferred I never listened very long. He was almost as much an institution as Robert J. Lurtsema.

Stop Tzar Vladimir the Condemned!

What if Eleanor Roosevelt had wings? -- Monty Python

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq

Re: Greg Bear - Science Fiction Author
I haven't read his work in quite a few years, but I really enjoyed them. Sad to see him go, especially at such a relatively young age. I would have really enjoyed seeing him involved in getting some of his work translated over to film/TV.
