  1. hi. im in the midst of compiling an encyclopedia of sorts of fellow african-carribean diasporic jews, so just two questions:
    1-were you born in chicago or kankakee
    2-when did you write “news today” and “kosher chitterlings”

  2. I’m reading your NPR commentary about why you want a physicist to speak at your funeral this weekend as part of the eulogy for my father. It became somewhat of an Internet meme amongst agnostics and atheists (like me), and that’s how I first encountered it. Thank you for writing it so perfectly.

  3. Hi Aaron. I stumbled across your “physicist eulogy” the piece online today. Subsequently my grandmother died about three hours ago. As someone who denies/doubts divine intervention this was just what I needed to read. I don’t know how much of it is yours and how much of it is massacred and altered, but thank you.

    • I am proud to say it’s all mine… I think… there are various copies around but I think they are all accurate. Thanks very much for your kind words. I’m immensely glad my little piece was of some use to you.

  4. It is news because I show it to you. I believe that was the slogan of a short lived news show called IW News in 1982. We should have lunch. –Leonard Borden. Email me at 597lb624gmail.com
