← Happy Birthday to Richard Dawkins

Happy three score and ten and may you enjoy many more productive years. There is reason for this not to be considered an unrealistically optimistic wish, as you do seem to have longevity in the family. I think it is a remarkable achievement to have attained such prominence in one professional field so early and then be at the forefront of what may already be considered a kind of social revolution in one's seventh decade. I hope you are able to cement this accomplishment still further in your eighth decade and give us all the maximum possible mileage from whatever "elder statesman" status your years may bring you. You have earned many laurels; please do us the favour of not resting on them now.

A very happy birthday,
