Re: Name that asteroid! *

From:

I'd like to second Peter Roberts' contention that Sun Ra's memory would be best served "by NOT naming an asteroid Blount in his honor." I have always felt that at the foundation of Ra's work was the idea that we CAN remake ourselves into the "higher beings"we desire to be. Chaining Sun Ra posthumously to a name he chose not to use for the majority of his adult life would be an injustice and completely anathema to the liberatory philosophy for which he stood.IMHO...
