"I was born the year World War I started, graduated the year Roosevelt and Hitler came to power, got married the day World War II began, had a son 20 days after Pearl Harbor, founded Galaxy magazine just minutes ahead of the Korean War, got divorced the year of the Sputnik, remarried the year of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. In other words, I'm a historical Typhoid Mary." -- Horace L. Gold
