Uncle Don's NotebookEach of us needs a notebook in which to jot down those flashes of insight, one-liners, bad jokes, Nobel-prize-worthy ideas, and provocative tidbits and scraps read or heard. This is mine.
Entries are stacked in reverse order, with the most recent ones first, so readers won't have to wade through old ones to get to the new ones. Occasionally they will be collected and archived.

Scraps from the Editor's Wastebasket (from The VECTOR)Uncle Don's Notebook is the natural successor to my regular column Scraps From The Editor's Wastebasket which appeared in The Vector, published from 1976 to 1991. References in these may be dated, but the opinions are still revent to similar events going on even today. Just substitute contemporary newsmakers and people of your own acquaintance and you'll see that certain things never change.
