"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

One of the great authors of our day has died...

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has died of heart failure. You wouldn't think reading about the horrors of the Soviet gulag system would be enjoyable but his writing was incredible. I read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich when I was in high school and I still remember it well. Godspeed Mr. Solzhenitzyn. Your talent will be missed.
