Idly checking in on the Mathematicians of the Day Website, I discovered that Max Black, who wrote one of the better critiques of Korzybski's work, had his birthday today, Feb. 24 in 1909.

Lobachevsky, one of the inventor/discoverers of non-euclidean geometry, also died on this date in 1856.

I salute them both.  More >

Pesach (Passover) the festival of matzah and our freedom, is over tonight at about 8:30. Then we can again eat chametz (bread and other things with leavening).

One thing that this holiday reminds me about: that even the "bread of affliction" can be made tasty. When you're given a lemon, make lemonade. When you're given matzah, make Matzah Brie

Rabbi Ron has a nice little article on the joys of Pesach food and another recipe for Matzah Brie here  More >
