    My Favourite 5 Scientists - #1

    I am one of these types who just loves ideas and skills and grace and beauty so much I was always going to have culture heroes. Stephen Jay Gould was a true culture hero of mine. In fact, in death, I guess he still is. He was ripped away from us 8 or 9 years ago, prematurely at...
