This Week with the Chicowitz

The New Math

A few years ago I bought a calculator for my neighbor, who was opening her own beauty shop. It seemed to be an essential tool to a young woman who could do wonders with hair, but could not read the electronic speedometer on her car; at least that's what she always told the police.

She was thrilled to receive the calculator, but brought it back to me the next day saying it didn't work. We'll take care of that, I said, a little bit embarrassed. But thank goodness I had the sense to ask her what was wrong before I stormed into Best Buy and demanded a replacement. She showed me that when you entered seventy-five cents (.75) and added fifteen cents (.15) to it, the result was not ninety cents. It was .9, not .90. It did not work right.

I Remember... November 30, 1967

The Viet Nam war was raging. Students were protesting. Lyndon Johnson was holding fast while pushing his "great society."

And on November 30, 1967, liberal Senator Eugene McCarthy announced his candidacy for the presidency on an anti-war platform.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:


1. First, our current events question:
Tuition at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Bronx sets parents back $45,000 per year. Last week students were drawing swastikas in class, having been taught that the swastika is considered a symbol of peace.
True or false?
No; now you've gone too far! This cannot be true.
Oh yes. It is true.

2. Last week we asked about the lyrics to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald." Who had a hit with that song in 1976?

3. Opps... last week we left off the last 2 words of the closing theme of "The Beverly Hillbillies." What are they?
 
So now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin;
And they would like you folks for kindly droppin' in.
You're all invited back next week to this locality,
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality.
Hillbilly, that is.
Set a spell;
take your shows off.
Ya' all come back now,

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.
