MIT Folks. If you had Hartley Rogers, Jr., for your intro calculus, or for multivariable calculus, or if he coached you in the Putnam Competition... His son, my Harvard classmate and crew captain, told me yesterday that Hartley passed away Friday morning, surrounded by family and love. I knew Hartley for the last 35 years, and we did many things together over those years, becoming good friends. I'm really going to miss him. And if you knew him, I imagine you will miss him too. He was one of kind, remarkably accomplished, humble and full of good cheer.

Five years ago this week.  R.I.P. John and Alicia Nash, and I send prayers to your family and friends.

Before leaving culture-rich Boston for the Pennsylvania Wilds, I took in the Russian movie Leviathan. It's Job without the happy ending. The one honest man in the film is destroyed by everything and everyone around him, by the state, family, friends, and the church. Everything and everyone is corrupt. Injustice triumphs. If you see Leviathan, make sure afterward you can walk out to bright daylight, because the sun will surprise and welcome you, and you'll need it. As a work of art and literature, though, Leviathan is complete.

Very sad to hear of the accident on the NJ Turnpike that killed John Nash and his wife Alicia today as they rode in a taxi.[1] I met them five years ago at Robin's Princeton 25th Reunion. I knew of John Nash because he went to graduate school with my friend Hartley Rogers, Jr.

The narrative of Mr. Nash’s brilliant rise, the lost years of severe mental illness, and the eventual awarding of a Nobel Prize captured the public mind.

Yeah.  I'm at Princeton now for Robin's 30th reunion.  Saturday night before the fireworks there was a moment to remember John Nash and his wife, and a portion of the fireworks was dedicated to Alan Turing.  My friend Hartley Rogers went to grad school with John Nash, and his advisor Alonzo Church was also Turing's advisor.

+Shriram Krishnamurthi, until I write my summary, you can visit his website http://www.charlieduke.net He said the info there was very similar to the talk he gave. I'll look at the site later and see if there's anything he said that is extra from what's there. If you ever get a chance to see him in person though, go! He's really a great speaker and quite funny. Parts of his story reminded me of Buzz Aldrin (my Dad and Buzz were friends), and we chatted a little about that last night.

I really enjoyed this documentary movie, "Red Army." I don't know that much about hockey, but I know a great sports story, and I remember the events of the 1970s through the 1990s that are part of the film. I used to race the Soviets in rowing and travel in the USSR and Russia, so the film brought back those memories. I gained a little insight into the US Olympic victory at Lake Placid and the film's villain, coach Tikhonov. ("If I ever needed a heart transplant, I would want his, because he's never used it.") At the end of the movie, I was thinking of the player Krutov that he is my favorite character in the film, and a moment later ... well, you'll see. I'm fascinated by the methods of the legendary good coach Anatoly Tarasov. If you ever wondered how Soviet hockey players could confound Canadian and NHL star teams, watching Tarasov get advice for his players from Soviet chess grandmaster Karpov and the artists of the Bolshoi Ballet, I wondered if there has ever been such creative genius in any hockey coach as Tarasov.
