“Murder most foul.” – Hamlet

I don’t know why, but I was shocked to read about the murder of an 85 year old Holocaust survivor in France yesterday.  To have survived the Holocaust, and all its barbarity, to then be stabbed 11 times and lit on fire in your old age?  Wow.  And some say anti-Semitism isn’t a concern.  Just, wow.

“Prevent it, resist it, let it not be so.” – Richard II

I am so proud of our youth today.  They are strong, they are intelligent, and they are not giving up.  They are exactly what this country needs.

My Son

“He wears the rose
of youth upon him.”  – Antony and Cleopatra

I took my seven year old son to college yesterday.  We just needed to stop by my office so I could get something I’d left behind, but my son entered one of the empty classrooms and began strutting in front of the chalkboard, imitating his elementary school teacher.  “Who can tell me the difference between NON-fiction and fiction?  Anyone?”  We played teacher for over an hour.  It was so adorable.  Maybe my son will go into education himself one day!

Pi Day

“I must have saffron to colour the warden pies; mace; dates, none–
that’s out of my note; nutmegs, seven; a race or two of ginger, but that
I may beg; four pound of prunes, and as many of raisins o’th’ sun.”  – Winter’s Tale

Happy Pi Day!  It’s difficult to find Shakespeare quotes about math, so I decided to go with literal pies.  A pie a day is about as good as pi every day.
