The Wisdom of Einstein


  1. Dear Michael Flynn:
    I'm posting here for a couple of reasons -- no comments here yet; and the post has a tangential connection with my comment.

    First, fourteen years after you wrote FALLING STARS, I finished it a few minutes ago. I just want you to know that I wept when Jimmy and Chase died.

    I was also thrilled to see where the name of the star of WRECK OF THE RIVER OF STARS came from...

    Most of all, I wanted to tell you that your writing has driven deep into my soul. It never fails to baffle, entertain, evoke, and invoke SOMETHING in me.

    I don't know any higher compliment that I can pay a writer.

    If you ever end up at one of the Minnesota SF conventions, you WILL be meeting me! If you request a panel discussion on education, I'll make sure I volunteer (I've been an elementary, middle school, and high school science teacher for 30+ years. I can honestly say that I've taught all of the sciences from Astronomy to Zoology at some time or another.) and then I'll buy you a drink (of whatever it is you're drinking...)

    Thank you for writing.

    Deeply, Sincerely,
    Guy Stewart

  2. While I concur with the sentiment, it does appear to be a false attribution.

  3. Well, all these people are most likely interacting socially with others, considering what the most popular smartphone applications are; just not the ones next to them.


Whoa, What's This?
