While this might be an appropriate title for a blog in this season anyhow, (and I know I haven't been blogging Lent very much), that's not what I'm talking about.
I just wanted to say my own small good-bye to Arthur C. Clarke who passed away early Wednesday. In my mind, this is the end of an era: the last of the greats has gone. I might not always (often?) agree with their world view, but the writers of the golden age of science fiction are hard to completely dislike.
