I forgot to mention that John Dobson died yesterday.

Most of you probably know about John Dobson.  Everyone knows about his 
telescopes, and practically every amateur astronomer in California, for 
the past 45 years, has met him. Lived in absolute poverty - right up 
there with St. Jerome.  The most interesting and inspiring man I ever met.
