Sometimes I simply amaze myself at how dumb I can really be. The "Wind Sand and Stars" thread has been quite interesting and the posting of the pdf much apprecuated as I make my way to Chapter 7 (gosh these pilots had guts).
But the part that amazes me is I just figured out that Antoine de Saint-Exupery is the same author as "The Little Prince", a story I read this to my kids years and years ago.
The mind is an amazing thing. All this stuff sits up there, much of which is in direct contraditions to something stored in some other brain cell, and it's not till you read or write and try to tell a coherent story or make associations that you realize what is missing, is contradictory or complementary.
