So, the second issue of mathNEWS this term. Things have been going a bit rocky so far, like missing articles, and a generally lazy web editor, but he promises to get this issue online somewhat sooner. I should know, I beat him myself.
ANYHOO, we've got a great issue here; most of the lost articles have been found and are either here in the issue, or added as a bonus to the online version, so look around! It's like an online quest for discovery, even though there's only 5% new content.
And in keeping with the weirdness, we asked our loyal production staff, "Why are you wearing pants?" And they replied: Kaitlyn "Half-pint" (try wearing a skirt in subzero temperatures and you'll have your answer), π (who says I am?), Andrew Fransen (my pantaloons were in the laundry), Math.Random() (society (shakes fist)), Val (crap, I thought the walk to school was cold), RainWater (butt floss), Movies Guy (because I'm not the entertainment on Thursday nights), DanS (I lost my shorts), J.Y. (the labs are disgusting enough as they are), Ellie (they're sexy).
