"Better yet, build it."

Happy birthday to toddlyles, artist extraordinaire, and pktheater, con guru. May you both have a fantastic day and many, many more!

On an unrelated note, I must pause in awe; I have been the recipient of several wonderful pieces of fan fiction over the last few months. I cannot thank the authors enough for their generosity in writing and sharing these terrific stories:

"The Last" by queenbamfie (The Professionals)

"Justifying the Means" by lady_lefaye (The Pretender)

"Vagrant" by syredronning (Star Trek: The Original Series)

Many heartfelt thanks to each of you!

On a further unrelated note, two thumbs up for Batman Begins. I'm glad I put it on my "must see" list.

And now, a quote for the day:

"People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway. You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better.

-Ray Bradbury, from Beyond 1984: The People Machines
