    not out of fear of dying, but simply because I want to see what comes next.  And next, and next, and next.  On the day humans walked on the Moon, somewhere were people who had grown up in log cabins with no electricity or running water, and knew that man would never fly in the air.  What moments like that await us in the future?  

    As to Lovecraft's work, I can certainly appreciate it, but I find it difficult to get into.  The Dream-quest of Unknown Kadath, for instance: He reuses blocks of recited text as a way to create a sense of hypnotic, dreamlike cadence, but I found it irritating.  I much prefer his more straightforward narratives.

    Democracy is a habit, not a circumstance.
