Harper Lee died today. That was pretty surprising to me, but I guess it was increasingly likely to happen at any time for her. And today we remember a literary great, and express disdain for the fact that Go Set A Watchman was published.

But much more important is her classic work.

RIP.

It seems that so many greats have passed away this year... Pierre Boulez, then Marvin Minsky, now Harper Lee...
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor
