Because the night

Entertaining review of a history of human activity after dark -- At Day's Close: A History of Nighttime, by A Roger Ekirch. Worth a read.
While we are at it: fight light pollution. Don't you think it sad that light from stars trillions of miles away gets wiped out in the last fifty feet by an over-abundance of urban lighting? Read about the movement for dark skies here.
