I just learned that James Randi is in the hospital. He suffered a heart attack late last week, and had to have bypass surgery. His condition is serious but stable-- doctors expect him to recover. He's being sedated right now to aid in his recovery (he's such a cranky guy that this is certainly for the best).
Randi is a major force in skeptic circles, and is the reason behind The Amaz!ng Meetings (which I blogged about last week here, here, here, and here), and plan to write more about soon). He is also my friend, and so I'll stay on top of this as much as I can. For more information, go to his website where they will have updates. This is also being discussed on his bulletin board.
