What's this about a Carl Sagan blog-a-thon?

Sorry about not having a link up for it. I've changed that. So you don't have to search, the site is here.

Since I don't know what I would write about Sagan, we put the word out at the meeting that if anyone wanted to write about him, they could do so. Perhaps you could serve in this capacity.

Thanks for the link.

I don't know anything about Sagan, except that he wrote some fantastic books. They were part of the reason why I have a fascination with space and astrophysics.
