Jeri Taylor b. 1938 (Star Trek)
Ms. Taylor was a writer and producer on several Star Trek shows, including The Next Generation and Voyager. She is credited with inventing the Cardassians. (Note: NOT THE KARDASHIANS! She cannot be blamed for them in any way.)
Many happy returns to Ms. Taylor.

Prediction: By 2013, One in ten people is a believer. Eight of the other nine have given up religion as a bad job.
