The latest (June/July 2005) _Notices of the American
Mathematical Society_ contains an interview with
Martin Gardner conducted by Allyn Jackson in Nov 2004.

When Jackson brings up Uri Geller, Gardner
mentions the two booklets he wrote (using the
pseudonym Uriah Fuller) which exposed some
of Geller's methods.

"Notices: When you wrote those booklets, didn't that
break the magician's code of not giving away the
secret of the tricks?

Gardner: Not really, because the things that Uri
Geller does are not done by magicians. Magicians
would be ashamed to stand up in front of an
audience and bend a spoon! It seems so silly."
