Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Kellie Pickler

All those people who still base their opinion of Kellie Pickler on her less-than-scholarly experience on "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader", are horribly ignorant. I am so proud to say that Kellie Pickler is one of the greatest women in North America, and she has just become a role-model to thousands of people. Recently, Ms. Pickler gave her hair for her friend who was going through cancer treatment. No, she didn't donate her hair for a wig, she shaved her head. She is now rep-ing the new, bold, bald look to support her friend in the very emotional struggle of losing hair to cancer. It is all too easy for a person of wealth, like Ms. Pickler, to buy her friend a top-of-the-line wig. It takes someone with great courage, love, and friendship to do such a self-less act in support of someone special. For that reason, Ms. Kellie Pickler, in my opinion, you have taken a little step in helping to change the world. So, thank you! And please, continue making great music, I love you, I love your story, keep it up!


Darn good and sure of it,
