I am interupting my political writings today to pay respects to the brilliant writer Michael Crichton who passed away today Novermber 5, 2008. I had the honor of meeting Mr. Crichton at a book signing and found him, first to be astonishingly tall, and then to be extremely friendly and accessable. Crichton was an extremely gifted story teller, and excelled both with his novels and his television series.
He will be missed. God Bless him and comfort his family.
