Bye Day

Quite the pi day. Einstein’s birthday. Stephen Hawking passed away. Is that coincidence or some ploy? If you have enough things happening, some of them will be weird. Sir John Sulston, the Nobel prize-winning pioneering genome scientist, also passed away recently. He happened to be the father of a fellow scientist in the Scientist in Residence program, whom I had unwittingly emailed about bug boxes while she was in England at the funeral. And I heard a former prof, ornithologist and evolutionary biologist and good guy, Jim Rising, also passed away. Sadly, every combination can be found in pi.
