Dr Sally Ride

1951- 2012

Also, props to Bert and Ernie for being gay before it was even allowed. Duh, I knew that at age three.

Five Books That Changed/Seriously Impacted My Life (in No Particular Order)
All is Revealed )

I'm sure if you ask me tomorrow or even tonight or a week from now, my answers will be different. Well, slightly. But I do have a core of about fifteen books (or so) that seriously impacted my life.
