    Good God.  I remember all the publicity about the Delany sisters but never a word about Chip Delany being their nephew!  What a cool little factoid.

    He taught at UMass for several years, and I will always be grateful for the day he told an obnoxious know-it-all at a convention to sit down and shut up when the know-it-all tried to monopolize the Q&A.  It was done with elegance, style, and much more class than I would have been able to muster, even if I'd wanted to.
