One of my favorite authors, Mr. Michael Crichton, past away last night. I can't imagine anything better than Jurassic Park and I will always be grateful for such an imaginative writer. Rooar! Although Crichton was a skeptic of climate change, he offered exciting and entertaining answers to some of science's most pondered topics. He might not have been right on global warming, but he was right in viewing science as something that is ever changing and malleable, a way of seeing the world as a solution to our problems. He thought that science would both aid and challenge our species and he wrote truthfully about his fears and fantasies.

Here's to an author who will be dearly missed.
