Stealth Cars

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 8:09 PM

From a June 8, 1987, New York Times  review of
Stephen King's novel Misery

"She doesn't like Fast Cars , the manuscript of which she found
in his traveling bag. It's confusing and the language is profane."

From the IMDb biography of film director Rob Cohen —

"He attended Harvard University and graduated
magna cum laude  in the class of '71, concentrating
in a cross major between anthropology and visual studies."

"He is the creator of The Fast and the Furious (2001),
Universal Pictures' biggest franchise of all time."

Cohen also directed Stealth  (2005). See a Sam Shepard fan site.

A Prime Radiant for Krugman

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 6:00 AM

Paul Krugman:
Asimov’s Foundation  novels grounded my economics

In the Foundation  novels of Isaac Asimov

“The Prime Radiant can be adjusted to your mind, and all
corrections and additions can be made through mental rapport.
There will be nothing to indicate that the correction or addition
is yours. In all the history of the Plan there has been no
personalization. It is rather a creation of all of us together.
Do you understand?”

“Yes, Speaker!”

— Isaac Asimov, Second Foundation , Ch. 8: Seldon’s Plan
