Off-topic, but I have to write a public post about this.
Susan S, who has been part of kitchen table math from the very beginning (right?) babysat Andrew while Ed, Chris, Jimmy & I attended my mom's funeral.
She was shaking in her boots, having read the tales here for lo these many years, but she did it. I told her she was starting at the top.
That is one of the most generous things anyone has ever done for me.
Thank you, Susan.
I owe you.
