Martin Gardner should not have been possible

The world is less curious, reasonable, fun and awesome now that Martin Gardner has died.

  1. I used to read his articles-columns every month in Scientific American in the late 1950’s into the 60’s. They were terrific and I only wish I had been able to learn more math from them-my fault, not his for trying! He wrote very clearly and well and was very entertaining. He seems quite modest from the NY Times obituary.

    It was interesting to see that I read him earlier when I was even younger and he was editing Humpty Dumpty, a magazine I remember enjoying as a young child.

    Quite a guy!
