Progress

After all that grim stuff about the STFC, Casey Kazan has cheered up my evening. The Daily Planet has a posting with a quote from Kurt Vonnegut which I now shamelessly reproduce :

Every passing hour brings the Solar System forty-three thousand miles closer to Globular Cluster M13 in Hercules, and still there are some misfits who insist that there is no such thing as progress

The Daily Planet post has a nice picture too, so check it out, and Digg it if you are young and trendy enough to be bothered. The quote is from Sirens of Titan, as I discovered when I also found it on this collection here. There are even more Vonnegut quotes here, including

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand

and even more .. ahh google it yerself.
