Geek stuff, sci-fi... Arthur C. Clarke, who peered into the heavens with a homemade telescope as a boy and grew up to become a visionary titan of science-fiction writing and collaborated with director Stanley Kubrick on the landmark film "2001: A Space Odyssey", has died. He was 90. The knighted British-born writer died early Wednesday in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where he had made his home for decades, after experiencing a cardio-respiratory attack, his secretary, Rohan De Silva, told Reuters. May he rest in peace, and I'd like to extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends. The pod-bay doors will open for the last time.

""One judges an artist not by his lifestyle, character, or actions, but by his art."

One of the the most important lessons I've received (from my Dutch Literature teacher)."


Thom,

So you are OK with possible child abuse as long as good art is produced?

I'm not impressed.
