Only just found out that Richard Dawkins had a minor stroke and has cancelled/postponed engagements in Australia and New Zealand.
Who knew he is 74? I never really thought about his age but I would have imagined he was sixty-something. To be honest, it never really occurred to me that he is mortal.
I hope he feels better soon and I wish I had tried to talk to him in 2013. Perhaps he should start to delegate the leg-work of his rationality and reason agenda to his younger and more energetic army.
I don't like to imagine him flying all over the world, getting stressed out by ignorant folk who don't deserve enlightenment. I like to imagine him at home, listening to classical music, or reading Science, enjoying the fruits of a life of being Science.
