As I glanced over the blogs which I follow (Thanks Erik)—I was reminded of the anniversary of Carl Sagan’s birthday. I believe his wisdom and insight will be missed for sometime to come. However I, personally, recall one quote which I find apropos—like a mote of dust that can’t be ignored:Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works.
