Dick as philosopher

Dick by R. Crumb.
The AP headline says, "Olympic torch goes out briefly, quickly rekindled". Let's hope civilization can be restarted as easily when it disappears in the coming decades.

Speaking of which, if you're of a philosophic bent and also of a certain age, you may enjoy this Times article about Philip K. Dick, the prominent 1960s sci-fi writer. I, too, have experienced anamnesis, though only for a few moments. I found the article fascinating and hey, part II is on the way.
