i finally figured out why I hadn't really thought about people I looked up to much before we talked about them. most of mine were literary or artistic and were already dead by the time they were famous, or at least by the time I got to them.

I guess that makes sense. Of my list, Fred Brooks is the only one still alive. Richard Feynman, Kelly Johnson, and Tom Kelly died while I was an adult. Rosalind Franklin, Alan Turing, and the Wright brothers were all dead before I was born.
