"The Japanese Man Who Saved 6,000 Jews With His Handwriting" by David Wolpe

"After the ceremony, in front of some 1,200 students, I spoke with his one remaining child, his son Nobuki, who arrived from Belgium to honor his father’s memory. He told me his father was “a very simple man. He was kind, loved reading, gardening and most of all children. He never thought what he did was notable or unusual.”"

Holy crap. Malware hidden in a strand of DNA hijacks the computer that analyzes that particular gene sequence.

We're going to live in a very weird world man.

@boozer and the made the team last year, and has improved out of sight since last then, so the chances are good. Just don’t want to get ahead of ourselves.

@boozer she’s not above using her cricket spikes to get ahead.
