Does anyone know if any of their shows are available to watch? Their book is very good.

How about a living mathematician (besides Andrew Wiles)?

I would not have an answer if someone asked me out of the blue.

Than again, I wouldn't know a heart surgeon, an astrophysicist, or a soup line worker in my hometown.

I vote for Master Payne in Washington (though I don't know if he's originally from there.)
Message: Posted by: Starrpower (Apr 17, 2015 06:58PM)
Can we choose for other states?

In that case, I select Kamarr the Discount Magician for New Jersey.
