Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

For too many, Carl Sagan was just a running joke about "billions and billions." But the man was taken with the giant* scale of the universe. As a thinking man, he couldn't help but have that affect his philosophy.

Take three and a half minutes, and go listen to the simple, profound words of a great thinker whom we lost too early.

Thank you. I didn't know he had died. Somehow, he is coupled with my view of sanity. And the Big Picture.But now I have my own, to which he contributed. Thank you for this.

He died back in 1996. He was 62.

The universe is an amazing place. A regular person will need a lot of help in appreciating just how amazing it is. Mr. Sagan was the man who helped me appreciate it.

Matt, there is a difference between Enormity (big badness), and Enormousness (big bigness).

Sagan DID do a lot to help science, especially in astrophysics- He was an interesting speaker also.
