Famed science fiction writer Frederik Pohl. I read his story Starburst about 25 years ago and it has stuck with me since.

Amen.

"I woke up this mornin' and you were on my mind ..." (Sylvia Tyson, not Pete Seeger — but nonetheless ...)

Not an auspicious start to the day.

The New York Times obit nicely portrays the political swamp of the 1950s and 1960s, especially HUAC. The only bright lights were wonderful folk groups like the Weavers and for a short time 'Camelot'.

I marched with Pete Seeger on the UN – effete organization that it was and still is – in the fall of 1960. Ugly (cold, rainy) weather.

Time to go listen to my old Weavers LPs in tribute.

[By the bye, Jon, isn't Beacon in your bailiwick? How'd you like to buy 17 acres on the Hudson for $100/acre these days?]

You're right; Beacon isn't too far away. The price for land these days is probably closer to $100 per square foot. shocked

Shirley Temple. My late cousin George had a crush on her when he was a child. My father, an inveterate prankster, phoned nephew George when he was about 5 and, without disguising his voice, claimed to be Shirley Temple. "Shirley" then admonished George to drink his milk.

Years later, when George was grown and had a family, my dad finally 'fessed up about this and George claimed that he had always wondered if the phone call was for real. Ah, memories...

Maybe I'll have a Shirley Temple tonight in her honor.

Hmmm... nah.
