I almost forgot: Happy Pi Day!

A reader:

Thought you would appreciate the attached picture. My wife is a high school math teacher who also happens to be very talented at arts and crafts. Combine that with some idle time (she’s home on maternity leave), and voila — a Pi flag hanging outside of our house! She had so much fun making this one that there is already talk of making more of them next year in order to sell to the public, although hopefully for more than $3.14 per flag …

I’d say it’s worth at least $31.42, Sir. Nice work, Ma’am, and congratulations on the coming event!

An idle thought — perhaps. After all, this was the week when my Twitter timeline was full of mainstream ... Read More
