Recently noted on Moon Traveller Herald





News you can use -A guy reading a paper at a bar today is a slug from prehistory. But give that same guy a cell phone to read this paper and he melts into the crowd.

Pres. Obama called Ted: “The Soul of the Democratic Party.” I hung out for the funeral procession that was in my neighborhood.

Some memory serves well - A couple of years ago we had a discussion, trying to remember encounter with Ginsberg and Dylan. We each remembered differently.

Elmore - Reading recently,  I found it remarkable to learn that Elmore worked in his brother's Radio repair shop after getting out of the Navy. Did this inform his feedback loop?

The Fractalist - Born in 1924 from a family of noted European mathematicians, Benoit Mandelbrot had an early interest in maps, and began early on to study nature's rough terrains.

Monbouquette at Mission Hill Little League Dinner - I was able to attend the annual Mission Hill Little League Trophy Award Ceremony and Dinner & see Red Sox pitching great Bill Monbo

Roland Kirk: Up there somewhere
