    Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless.
    Not to speak is to speak.
    Not to act is to act.

    It won't mean anything to anyone but me, but Dr. John Michel.

    Dr. Michel was my primary math professor - with 3 years of calculus plus differential equations and statistics, he was the only prof I had every semester of my college career. He retired in 2004, so I caught him at the tail end of his career, but he was still a brilliant guy ... a nutty professor type (tall, lanky, uncoordinated and easily excitable) who didn't take advanced mathematics too seriously, which is a rarity in that profession. He based many of his assignments on his love of interplanetary travel and would return to California every summer to work at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab. Strangely enough, I just checked up on him via Google a couple of weeks ago to see what he was up to.

    RIP to the good doctor.
