His column was one of the better reasons to read Scientific American, back when it was worth reading.

I didn't know about the Humpty Dumpty magazine. That was early reading for me, in my (doctor) father's office waiting room. Then I, along with Mr. Gardner, progressed to Scientific American - he as a brilliant writer, and I as a stumbling reader.


BTW, his philosophy on religion would have made for some interesting discussion in this group. Too bad he never joined in.

You bet he was on top of things. I read his stuff anytime I could get some. I was programming and running life on my home made 8080 machine in the 70's.

Just got a hexaflexagon program. Lots of mental work with him.
