A Dose of Strong Coffee and the Chaos Theory

There is a verse from the Torah ? near the end of Numbers ? that my great-grandfather was fond of quoting whenever someone asked him why he didn't go to synagogue on Saturday mornings: "In any place that you remember me, I will come to you and bless you." He was a religious man, and he always devoted his Saturdays to prayer and study; but if he didn't have to leave his home ? which according to Jewish Law, he didn't ? then he stayed content within the walls of his apartment on Socrates St., Mexico City, Mexico, entirely oblivious to the goings on of the largest city in the world.I have always admired this: he lived simultaneously as a law unto himself and in strict accordance with another law ? Jewish law, which is not known for its flexibility.

No lightIn the weekend's initial contest, the Tigers were shut out by perennial-powerhouse Brown (12-5-3, 9-3-2, 5-2) for the second consecutive time.
