What makes a "classic" a classic? I should remember this from my college days when I studied Russian literature. There was something about timelessness, right? I was reading an article about honeybees and colony collapse disorder, and it was prefaced by the following quote from Leo Tolstoy himself, "The closer we examine the honeybee, the more we realize the workings of a beehive encompass territories beyond our comprehension."
What an amazing human being.-- Lola
