Miscellaneous non-astronomical stuff:
Book of the month:
has been compared to "All Quiet on the Western Front" - and that's not an exaggeration. One of the most powerful novels ever written about war and humanity.
You can buy these books through one of the world's great independent bookstores,
The Tattered Cover
located in Denver, Colorado
Music you should be listening to:
(if you have any taste whatsoever, which I'm not counting on)
: the world's greatest band. Be sure to check out
Brian Smith's amazing Church web site,
If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.
