So What the Hell Have You Done Lately

Congratulations to Naomi Leonard on being awarded a MacArthur "genius award". I don't really know Naomi that well but she works with people I know at Caltech and on a subject--underwater vehicles--that I studied there. Call her a colleague-of-a-colleague.

She is the fourth MacArthur grant winner to which I feel I have some connection, however tenuous. I took a class from John Schwarz, I was a Harvard classmate of Eva Silverstein, and I once assisted James Randi on stage. I have to admit I'm not sure any of them could pick me out of a police line-up.
