Robert Anton Wilson, Out (UPDATED)

Writer, Philosopher, Prophet, Hellraiser, Freethinker, Robert Anton Wilson passed on this morning. No doubt he left looking forward to his next great adventure. If you never read any of his work, get to it. Wilson's writing has the powerful ability to actually change the way forever how one sees themselves in the universe and, indeed, how one sees the universe itself. Time, space, truth, nature... you'll see none with the same eyes as before.

From his blog:

Robert Anton Wilson Defies Medical Experts and leaves his body @4:50 AM on binary date 01/11. All Hail Eris!

On behalf of his children and those who cared for him, deepest love and gratitude for the tremendous support and lovingness bestowed upon us.

(that's it from Bob's bedside at his fnord by the sea)

RAW Memorial February 07date to be announced .

UPDATE: Reason Magazine Online has a great atricle on RAW with links and commentary.

Florida Gators Win It All

Robert Weintraub, writing for, has my favorite take on the event: Urban Renewal - The Florida Gators and their genius coach maul Ohio State.

And here's a few more of my favorite pics:
