    Default Author Michael Crichton Dies

    "The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
    Reichsfuhrer Herman Goering at the Nuremburg trials.

    It's clear from his books that he either does a lot of drugs or did a lot of drugs.

    I guess it caught up with him.

    I guess he couldn't think of an ending so he just wrapped it up abruptly.
