One of the most atrocious aspects of mass murder is the denial of being able to mourn one person with the acknowledgement they deserve. When you have this many, when one becomes numb to the enormity of it, those lost are robbed even more than of their lives. It's one of the most enraging aspects of this...as well as war.

With the current tragedy, the only thing families have to be grateful for are the intact remains of their loved ones.

In the matter of Petty, it brings to mind how Whitney Houston's family kept her daughter strung along just to make a certain date. I obviously hope Petty makes a miraculous recovery, but I wonder if the same is happening here, or if Petty is really hanging on himself.

Apparently he has a DNR order in place, and has been taken off life support.

Hell of a talent, sad to see him go.

I bought a second-hand copy of A Brief History of Time about fifteen years ago through the Friends of the Library store. It turned out to be a first edition, with the foreword by Carl Sagan that's absent in the later editions. Even though some of the specific questions discussed in the 1988 book have been answered over the last 30 years, its elegant use of devices like light-cones means that it's still a great first book for cosmology or astrophysics, accessible to many who would balk at something with more math. I'd urge everyone who can to buy a copy, and especially gift it to people who either love science, love the stars, or just love to ask big questions.



By the quirk of US conventions, he made it to Pi Day (3-14).
