One of the many strange things about Starlink is that it’s a game originally designed for kids that’s turned out to be more daring and open ended than most of those aimed at adults. We didn’t catch the details of the pulpy sci fi plot but the game features a whole simulated solar system, where alien invaders go about their own business until you interfere with them.

To add to Jan lovely and fitting tribute to my father, for those who like to learn more about him, I like to mention my 1979 documentary, The Many Faces of Stephen Deutch. Part of his extensive collection at the Chicago Historical Museum, (meaning Stevie in Hungarian) features both his sculptures and photographs, with appearances by his gifted wife, Helene and his dear friends, Nelson Algren and Studs Terkel, with music by the noted Fine Arts Quartet, who perform live in the film. If you search a bit, you can also find stray copies of his book, Deutch, Photographer From Paris to Chicago, 1932 1989, by Abigail Foerstner, with a foreword by Studs (TriQuarterly Books 1989).
