Journal of No. 118

Pretty good SciAm this month @ 12:18 pm


One of the more interesting stories was about the life and work of Franz Nopcsa, Transylvanian baron, geologist, paleontologist, open homosexual. Unfortunately, it has a sad tabloid-ready ending -- in 1933, he drugged and shot his lover and then himself. "The reason for my suicide is my nervous system, which is at its end. The fact that I killed my long-term friend and secretary, Mr. Bajazid Elmaz Doda, in his sleep, without him having an inkling as to what was going on, was because I did not want to leave him behind sick, in misery and in poverty because he could have suffered too much."

Next one, this one is U.S.-centric (cuz global would be WAAAY too many for me).

But thanks! I might actually get to it before the year is out, though the aborted psychedelic drug piece has a publisher who's paying semi-real money for it, so that takes priority.
