Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Monday, March 2 is the 105th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, alias Dr. Seuss.

He was a wonderful cartoonist, storyteller, and observer. In his books he spoke for environmentalism and against consumerism, racism, fascism, arms escalation, and isolationism.

He also portrayed loving families that differed from the accepted nuclear model, facing problems rather than running from them, trying new things even when they seem too strange, and much more. He was a good guy.

If I had realized earlier that this was his birthday, I would have bugged Mark to run one of his famous Savage Lorax games this week!

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!
