Note: The quotation above is from the title of Dr. Hogg's book, The Stars Belong to Everyone (1976). (I had originally misquoted this as "The stars are for everyone." Perhaps I was thinking, in counterpoint, of what Arthur C. Clarke wrote at the close of Childhood's End: "The stars are not for men.") Dr. Hogg's inspiration was a song by Buddy De Sylva & Lew Brown, 'The Best Things in Life are Free' (1927):

The moon belongs to everyone,
The best things in life are free,
The stars belong to everyone,
They gleam there for you and me.
