Real geeks don’t choose

Dr. Fox is on the horn’s of the classic “free ticket” dilemma; should he use the tickets to see Watchmen, Star Trek: The Reboot, or Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. You can help him decide which one his wife will let him see in his comments section.

Pointing out a few memorable moments, Dave concludes with a line we all should share,

In light of yesterday’s holiday, and todays inauguration, there is much attention given to the dreams of Martin Luther King Jr., Barack Obama and America. Although the dreams have a core consistency to them, their actual playing out is one of evolution and growth as they encounter the realities of history and humanity. Dr. Russell Arben Fox ruminates on these dreams and how they change, even as they bring about change.

The same age as the Cinncinnati Bengals

Born 3 days after Apollo 8 returned safely to earth and on the same day Trygve Lie, first United Nations Secretary General, passed away, it seems pre-ordained that Russel Arben Fox would be some what politically oriented. He turns loose the teacher in him with 40 lessons for his 40th birthday.
