Tom Lehrer is 80 today. Which is nice, since when I saw references to him on other blogs I assumed he’d died. Sheer genius.

The world really needs more like him – brilliant math teachers who are brilliant parodists and public intellectuals on the side.
Yes, this is precisely what the world needs more of. Relatedly, Dinesh D’souza is an arse.
