Happy Earth Day, Frank Herbert


About 45 years ago, after I'd lost the race for congress in Washington State and started my career in guerrilla warfare for Data General in Massachusetts, Frank Herbert, inventor of EARTH DAY and author of Dune (who had talked me into running for congress in the first place, because I reminded him of his short-story character The Tactful Saboteur), flew out to Massachusetts to see me and my wife Rita. I fondly remember Frank every Earth Day. 

Hey, Frank got me 47% of the vote in Washington!

Frank, I hope you're touring the cosmos in style! Somewhere out there is a planet called Dune full of giant sand worms.
