Note on the table (below) that the light year distances (in parcecs) have changed twice
between 1998 and 2014.  The 2008 measurements are what we used in the book when
we went to press but the updates from the 2014 measurements are what we'll be sticking
with from here on out.  A future edition will reflect those numbers.
