This morning, the New York Times published an essay by Oliver Sacks wherein he discusses his diagnosis of terminal cancer. His essay addresses his condition and prognosis with uncommon grace and dignity. In addition, science fiction author John Scalzi published an essay entitled Oliver Sacks and Public Individuals at the Close. Dr. Sacks is a renowned clinical neurologist and best-selling author of many fascinating books. He is one of the great contributors to life on this planet whose legacy will endure and he will be greatly missed when he leaves us.
