So, with Bradbury's passing, I was considering the list of Golden Age authors who are still with us, and how long until they were all gone.

Then I considered Harlan Ellison - the most ornery man in science fiction. Death itself probably doesn't want to deal with Ellison. Ellison may be immortal. The other Golden Age authors could move in with Ellison, and get protection from the Spectre of Death just by proximity! They could all live forever!

Except, that'd be a forever living with Harlan Ellison. You pick your poison, I suppose.

Then I thought that, you know, if Ellison saw this, he might well just kick off tomorrow just to show me. Ellison would do that, just to prove a point. He's that ornery.

So, CNN and ORC International (the gamer in my loves that name) did a poll*, with lots of questions. The answer to one, and the historical trend of answers, I find interesting...

The Question: Do you happen to have a family member or close friend who is gay or lesbian?

199841%57%

200949%51%

*Insert standard disclaimer about statistics here - yes, I know the issues surrounding such polls.
