Happy pi day!
This coming Wednesday, March 14th, is known for many things. It's the day the Birmingham Six were freed(*), the day legendary railroad engineer Casey Jones was born, the day Karl Marx died.
It's also Pi Day (March 14, or 3/14, being close to 3.14, the first three digits of pi). The AP has a nice story about the people who obsessed with the mathematics and mysticism of this most special of all the numbers.
(*) Forget who they were? Go rent In the Name of the Father.
