20140122 John Dobson, age 98

From Jim Cadieux: "The link above is the John Dobson obit.
He rated several paragraphs in the New York Times - I particularly like the bit where
he hadn't needed to file a tax return since 1944. I had him over to the house in 1996
when he visited Aiken and gave a lecture at the Ruth Patrick Center.
That was the year he attended the Winter Star Party when he was 80.
