You have a "death notice" tag? Expecting more people to die soon?

It's sufficiently descriptive of the content. Also, Ray Bradbury can't last that much longer. :P

I just had mild epiphany, contemplating the imbalances of birth and death:

When someone famous/loved dies, everyone is sad since they know that person will not be around anymore.

Yet, when that same person was born, not everyone was happy since they didn't know that that person would be so famous/loved.

Conversely, while there's no guarantee, we can probably guess that somewhere out there in the past months some awesome sci-fi author was born...

It kinda makes it easier to not feel so bad about Vonnegut's passing.

Now if only this kid would stop pooping in his diaper and get writing!

Oh, sad.

I just sent my favorite short story ever to a friend of mine a week or two ago...
