A couple of things that always struck me about the writings of Asimov et al is the inherent optimism each of these authors showed in their writings.

As one of my Facebook commenters said, “OMFg!! My 8 year old comes home with more accurate sh*t from the playground than this!” And to think, this guy, Mike Frey, a “concerned father and husband,” shared his mind-blowing ignorance with the world as he shared his deep thoughts about why gays and lesbians getting married has something to do to anal sex and AIDS.
