John Burroughs

Once or twice in the height of 'Happy Days' excitement, which had more to do with Henry Winkler as The Fonz than ever had to do with me, we were kind of like a boy band for a year or so, and we would go out on personal appearances and feel the limousine rocking, and the grabbing at your clothes and people trying to steal your cap. Ron Howard

Dolls fire our collective imagination, for better and - too often - for worse.

Ellen Datlow

Once I tried to make a standardization of staircases. Probably that is one of the oldest of the standardizations.

One thing that we learned that we published on our blog post is that uniformly, men lie about their height by almost exactly two inches.

This is ludicrous. Seven- and eight-year-olds valiantly trying to cover the same acreage as those grown-up chaps in the Premier League is absurd.

Gary Lineker
