Walter Williams, who imo never uttered or wrote a word that wasn’t correct. A paragon of common sense.

Quote:The renowned Arecibo Observatory radio telescope in Puerto Rico, closed because of damage, completely collapsed Tuesday morning.

"Friends, it is with deep regret to inform you that the Arecibo Observatory platform has just collapsed," tweeted Deborah Martorell, a senior meteorologist for WAPA-TV and El Nuevo Dia in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Martorell, who was at the observatory on Monday, received a call from a scientist at the site Tuesday saying the giant reflector dish and the Gregorian Dome that held instruments above it had both collapsed, El Nuevo Dia reported.

I wish this would be on the new thread, where more folks would see it over time.

The Arecibo Observatory was designed at Cornell by William Gordon, who soon thereafter moved to Rice, where he was Dean of Engineering and later, Provost.

He was a Faculty Associate at Baker College, and one of my favorite profs -- even though I never took any classes from him. I often shared his table at lunch.

always thought that the teasips blew it on Fred. He was very close to two national championships-Just Joe Montana and a fumbled punt at the cotton bowl stopped that. It took a long time for them to get to as close as he had them. Seem to remember a lot of grumbling about boring. I will take boring and winning over exciting and losing-see Mackovic, John.

Former Astros shortstop Denis Menke, a 2-time All-Star for Houston, at 80.

I remember, in 1969, when he and Jimmy Wynn hit grand slams in the same inning.

But, he was also known for being part of one of the worst trades (for us Astros fans) in history. He was traded to Cincinnati along with future Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan, starting pitcher Jack Billingham, center fielder César Gerónimo and utility outfielder Ed Armbrister, while the Astros received second baseman Tommy Helms, first baseman Lee May and utility infielder Jimmy Stewart.

Ugh!

almost as bad as the Hopkins trade. Menke was a childhood favorite. RIP
