ROUND TABLE
for November 27 -- December 3, 2011

The week dawns:





November 27, 1995 -- churlpat's son is born in Aurora, CO
under the lights of:



November 28, 1948 – Beeb Birtles, Dutch-Australian musician (Little River Band)

November 29, 1947 The Partition Plan: the United Nations General Assembly votes to partition Israel.

November 30, 1982 – Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, is released.


December 1: Birthdays this date:

Nero Wolfe creator Rex Stout

Stage portrayer of Peter Pan, Mary Martin

admiral and DCI: Stansfield Turner

Singer Lou Rawls:



December 2, 1859 – Militant abolitionist leader John Brown is hanged for his October 16th raid on Harper's Ferry. Ironically, he had been captured by a small group of Marines led by Robert E. Lee. Present at his execution were, among others, Stonewall Jackson and, oddly enough John Wilkes Booth. One wonders if this incident was in part responsible for Booth's attitude of hatred towards the North, which culminated in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.


December 3, 1984 – Bhopal Disaster: A methyl isocyanate leak from a Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India, kills more than 3,800 people outright and injures 150,000–600,000 others (some 6,000 of whom would later die from their injuries) in one of the worst industrial disasters in history.


And as the sun goes down at the end of the week, I leave you with:

The man arrested is a University of Utah professor:

Grant D. Smith, Ph.D.


Here's his web page. I wonder how long it will be online since he's currently been placed on administrative leave by the university.

...


They are holding the 47 year old who "likes" children in Boston on $75,000 bail. His pretrial hearing will be held Dec. 27. Merry Christmas.

Here's the Boston Globe article.

Modeling techniques include ... dynamics s(t)imulations, and ... Monte Carlo approaches. ..."

The whole page is in code, which I am sure we have a few Ranters who are far better than I at teasing out the encrypted meanings. I did some of it with the few minutes I had to spare.
