Happy Father’s Day!

My dad claims he reads this blog. I guess now we will figure out whether he is telling the truth or not.

Here is an article from Discover magazine highlighting some of my father’s greatest contributions to science. (If you never click through anything on this blog, this is definitely the link to follow.)

Links to a few of his research papers are here, here, and here. (Proceed with caution.)

Happy Father’s Day, Dad.

LOL!

The date on the article is April 1st, so I read it thinking it was supposed to be a super geeky April Fools Trick.

LOL! "If you never click through anything on this blog... pull my finger?"

A very witty read, indeed.

Anyway, Happy Father's Day to you, and he (and we!).

Steven, you and your father look and smile really alike!;-)

Hey Linda,

Does your dad hang around on this blog that he will get the message? Maybe you should try a thing called telephone to be direct or if you are really keen on the internet maybe you can send an email. Get the message.

Of course, I will be completely wrong if you happen to be Levitt's sister. Then my sincere apologies for being rude cauz then your comment makes sense!

Happy Father's Day to Michael, Steve, Stephen and all the other dads who read this!

I tried to read one of his papers, but then gave up before I reached the second paragraph. Instead I read this:

That was a fascinating article! Thanks for posting it.

(procrasting_econ: I'm pretty sure Linda is Levitt's sister. He mentioned she ran a yarn store, and her email address was yarnzilla. Ergo, sister!)

I always enjoy your posts and, as a father and grandfather, certainly this one.

But, let me pick a small nit with you. "Whether OR NOT" is one of those expressions that really bothers me. In almost every case, you can leave out the "or not" and the idea is still clearly expressed. Try it.

Okay Steven can you crunch the numbers on this? What are the odds that I was walking randomly down the nonfiction aisle at the library and picked up your book Freakonomics this past week and the fact that my mother was just diagnosed this past weekend with Ulcerative Colitis and your Dad happens to be a gastroen-terologist? And I found this out by visiting your site because of my fascination with your book which I am almost done with :) Talk about Freaky! Happy Father's Day to your Dad.

I do believe that Linda IS Steven's sis. He has blogged about her on at least one occasion.
