"Noisy" Rhysling was a spacer who got blinded and spent his time writing poems, some of which he sang. "The Green Hills of Earth"* was one such. I had that poem printed out and posted in my gun tub. It reminded me of the "Earth" I had left behind when I joined the Navy.

Username --> Combination of random people I know. It's a pseudonym I created perhaps 13 years ago in attempt to anonymity. Probably useless now in today's internet.

Avatar --> I suppose this one is self-explanatory lol.
