Miss sent me this GetPocket article about (fractal mathematician and) Richard Feynman's biographer James Gleick's discovery of a letter Feynman wrote to his wife 488 days after her death. The climax of the article is how un-Feynman-ish such a gesture was, given his reputation as an uncompromising materialist. A man who doesn't believe in afterlife pens a letter to his dead wife, so what do we make of this. On the advice of his psych officer at Los Alamos?

Thank goodness for our part-timer who helps with answering phones and responding to vendor payment demands. Even with her on the job today, I still did not get to deferred revenue at all, and ACH/EFT receiving was kind of half-done.
