I do love secondhand books that open to the page some previous owner read oftenest. The day Hazlitt came he opened to «I hate to read new books,» and I hollered «Comrade!» to whoever owned it before me.
There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite. Every constellation. Souvenirs of space walks and astronauts. And rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.
