Stephen Hawking hospitalized, reported very ill (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090420/ap_on_re_eu/eu_britain_hawking - broken link)

I hope that this is nothing too serious. I would hate to lose a mind of that caliber.

His ability to persevere amazes me. He was diagnosed with ALS almost 50 years ago and didn't let it slow him down. And yes he is an amazing mind.

Stephen and I are the same age. His mind is 100 times past mine.

Stephen Hawking is expected to recover from his infection. However, he's is very frail, not so young, and has been hospitalized several times before.
