Jerry Pournelle Status

As some of you probably know, Jerry Pournelle had a stroke recently. Fortunately, he seems to be recovering, and his cognition appears to be pretty much unaffected, though he cannot type. Oddly enough, he is being treated in the very room he was visiting his friend Harlan Ellison in, who was being attended to for the same reason in October. It appears that Ellison has made a good recovery as well. 
Both are great men, keep them in your prayers. If, like many of my readers, you are not so inclined, then perhaps reflect upon how two men made many of our lives so much richer. 

Also: Dr. Pournelle at least, has a tip jar

1 Harlan Ellison is famously acerbic, but I've never heard a bad word about Jerry Pournelle.  Hope they both make full recoveries; strokes are bad bad things.

2 Harlan Ellison is famously acerbic...

That's a very nice way of saying "a nasty, foul-tempered troll."
