RIP Martin Gardner

The "Skeptical Inquirer", Martin Gardner, has died. His columns and books were entertaining, illuminating, and an important corrective to the credulous nonsense that is flooding out popular culture. His contributions were many -- he will be missed.

Read about him here, here, and here. I particularly recommend Roger Kimball's little essay here.
