Happy Birthday to Terry Pratchett, the creator of Discworld and my favorite science fiction author. He now has Alzheimer's and has declared that he will commit suicide when he can no longer function. I hope that day is far off but I commend him for his courage. That's a tough stand to take but when he goes, he will have left us with a priceless legacy. http://www.terrypratchettbooks.com/
Another birthday "boy": William Kentridge, creator of "The Refusal of Time,” and many other works of art. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Kentridge
