First off, I am glad that Obama is now President Elect.  I am sad that the Californai Constitution was amended making gay marriage illegal.  I am also sad that Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park died today.

Prolific novelist and “ER” creator Michael Crichton has passed away. He was 66. Perhaps best known for being the author of Jurassic Park and its sequel The Lost World, which were turned into a hugely successful movie franchise, his numerous books have sold over 150 million copies worldwide.

What a sad day!
