    He wrote in his name, just like I wrote in Hillary’s name a few years ago.

    Yes, I am 20 - will be 21 next birthday.

    Lol, but that was not what I was asking - I was making a bit of a lame joke. E.g: If someone in his forties is 'a young man', does that make me a child? Weak - I know!

    Fair enough, a child, but certainly a wizened one. You put meaning into 'out of the mouths of babes.'

    He is an excellent author though I'm not familiar with his Mars series. I certainly recommend his Three Californias Series, and I'll now be looking into his Mars Trilogy.

    Thanks!
