|Arthur C. Clarke was a great man, and the last of the great storytellers of the 20th century. He inspired and encouraged hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of people around the world to pursue the ways of science, technology and literature. His visions, his legacy will keep inspiring generations to come. This is the truth, this is the one thing we should remember. Even if the lies about Clarke were true (and they are not), it wouldn't have mattered. |
So, let's show some respect, let us hail Clarke, and not bury him in lies, fabrications and utter bullshit. He was a great man, and that is how I, for one, intend to remember him. He will be sorely missed.
