I read all these articles yesterday, but I have to say my favorite was A New Theory of the Universe by Robert Lanza in The American Scholar. I wonder if he is taken seriously, thought a quack? I also read about the new supercollider they’re about to turn on in Cern, which felt like on the other side of the science planet in approach. Can’t wait for them to turn it on to see what happens. I’m hoping for magic.
Oh! Tonight my band is playing at a gala at the Museum of Natural History. I just read all those thrillers written by guys who used to work there. I hope I get to wander around the museum, with a drink in my hand. Maybe people who work there will sneak me into some musty old storeroom filled with treasures that have been filed away and forgotten for decades. I’ll find this box, hidden behind some big old piece of equipment. What’s this, I’ll say. I don’t know, they’ll answer, then frown. It’s not on the accession list (is that the word museum people use?). We open it up and it’s filled with jewels and a mummy. NO. A ZOMBIE. Totally a zombie. He comes to life! Havoc ensues!
