Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Martin Gardner (1914-2010) passed away on Saturday, May 22 at the age of 95.  He wrote Mathematical Games for Scientific American magazine for 25 years and dozens of books and articles on recreational math and pseudoscience.

I grew up reading Gardner along with Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, and Stephen Jay Gould.  They all made science and math interesting for the intelligent reader.

All dead and gone now.

I'm feeling old.
