Happy Birthday, Charles!

Happy 200th Birthday!
(and happy birthday to my son-in-law Alan in Toronto - who is the same age as Darwin in the picture). Here is the YOUNG Darwin, of Beagle voyage age - we so often see the older Darwin in pictures. Let's offer encouragement and hope to young scientists and thinkers and rationalists and humanists of TODAY - that they have the curiousity, and courage, and support of all of us, on their own voyages to make the world a better place for all -- and that "social Darwinism" is not used as an excuse for abandoning the quest for a more humane and sustainable planet for all its habitants - bi-pedal, opposable thumbed - and otherwise endowed. (Mary, speaking for me only, or SFMO). Happy Birthday!
