Once again there was a literary reference on the television show Lost last night. Henry Gale, the captured man, the one that some of the survivors suspect is an "Other", started a conversation with Locke about the writers Ernest Hemmingway and Fyodor Dostoyevsk.
The name Henry Gale is also the name of a physicist who worked in the fields of astrophysics and magnetism. Also, Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz had an uncle named Henry Gale. Henry Gale is supposed to have been from Nebraska and he ended up in Oz in his balloon. The Henry Gale in Lost claimed he and his wife landed on the island in a balloon. Hmmm. MORE TRIVIA
