In memoriam

Well, I guess I might as well be the one to post the obituary notice — Dr. Edward Teller, the father of the Hydrogen Bomb, prominent physicist of several disciplines, general political lunatic, and the model (I can say this now that I know he won’t overhear and come after me with sharp objects for it) for Dr. Strangelove in all too many ways — passed away yesterday at the age of 95 at his home on Stanford campus.

The world just won’t be the same without him. Doctor Teller, for all that you were a madman, you were one of the most interesting madmen I’ve met.

  1. So, does this mean it would be poor taste to write a musical now?

  2. How do you know he won’t come after you with his brain in a jar and attached to mecha-armor? This is Dr. Teller after all. 😉

  3. Actually, it might be even better now. Sort of as a posthumous tribute.

  4. I thought somebody already _did_ write a musical about him – and they called it “TELLER!” (of course).
    What might be even better is a 30% fact, 70% bullshit musical about him.
