No great problem is ever solved but how liberating to make such a discovery at a strip club or race track. The idea that the true poet is a maker of equations sounds good but I'm agnostic on that issue (as stock market types say when they don't have an opinion one way or the other). About Amie Wilkinson, however, you are completely right. She is one of the most attractive figures in contemporary math. No question. -- DL

I'm glad you agree about Amie! She's now at the University of Chicago. Olga Holtz, professor at Berkeley, is also very alluring both materially and intellectually. But I think her work is not quite as abstract as Amie's. That might bother some people but 'in the dark all cats are gray.' (B. Franklin)

Welcome back Mitch! Great to see you here.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
