    Writing prompts by James Wayne for March 17 - 23 have been
    posted and are linked below. Following is just a sample of
    the stellar prompts for next week. (BTW, the first prompt
    for March 19 will resonate with some readers here. Perhaps
    we can discuss on this board.)

    Psychologist B.F. Skinner was born in 1904. When asked about
    the future of computers, he said, “The real problem is not
    whether machines think but whether men do.” What do think he
    meant by that?

    In 1942, two American scientists describe element 94, which
    they named “plutonium,” after the newly discovered planet.
    If you discovered a new element, what would you name it?
    Describe what a new element might be like, and why you chose
    the name you did.

    French scientist Louis Pasteur began work on a vaccine
    against anthrax in 1877. Pasteur had already proved that
    microorganisms cause disease, and had invented a way to
    purify milk and other liquids that cannot be boiled. This
    process was named pasteurization, after him. If something
    was to be named after you, what would you like it to be, or
    to do?
