I cant get the audio links to work.

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

Re: Harlan Ellison, 1934-2018
he wrote what I consider one of the best original star trek episodes (City at the edge of forever)... and the short stories 'a boy and his dog' and 'I have no mouth but I must scream' are certainly classics.

Aretha Franklin, 76
Queen of soul. Here's how Bob Dylan began his book, Tarantula:

"Guns, the Falcon's Mouthbook
& Gashcat Unpunished

aretha/ crystal jukebox queen of hymn & him diffused in drunk transfusion wound would heed sweet soundwave crippled & cry salute to oh great particular el dorado reel & ye battered personal god but she cannot she the leader of whom when ye follow, she cannot she has no back she cannot . . . beneath black flowery railroad fans & fig leaf shades & dogs of all nite joes, grow like arches & cures the harmonica battalions of bitter cowards, bones & bygones while what steadier louder the moans & arms of funeral landlord with one passionate kiss rehearse from dusk & climbing into the bushes with some favorite enemy ripping the postage stamps & crazy mailmen & waving all rank & familiar ambition than that itself, is needed to know that mother is not a lady . . . aretha with no goals, eternally single & one step soft of heaven/ let it be understood that she owns this melody along with her emotional diplomats & her earth & her musical secrets"

Re: Burt Reynolds: (February 11, 1936 September 6, 2018)
Just saw him a while ago in City Heat with Clint Eastwood - love the scene where they compete in pulling out bigger and bigger guns.

And our geese will blot out the sun.
