I did not catch this significant piece of news last week. One of my favorite authors and storytellers, Michael Crichton, died. His name is popular to many of us because of the movie Jurassic Park – but he was a well-known author as far back as 1969 with The Andromeda Strain. As you look through his list of novels, you see Hollywood picked up many and created movies based upon them. We are all very fortunate to have benefit of his many public contributions.
