This was a great man I can say on reading this article. And what he said about modern teens is 100% true. It bothers me too. Ignoring this issue now may influence our future greatly! _______________ William - http://www.carid.com/

Dylan,there was an event here in the bay area years ago honoring Mr. Lidow. I missed it unfortunately.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
