Goodbye Mr. Wizard

Mr. Wizard, dead at 89.

I always loved this show, and my geeky little self would plop down and watch it whenever possible.

I am always amazed at how many scientist claim him as the reason they went into the field. I wish I could have found a better video. If anyone finds one, let me know and I'll post it.

My two intellectual loves are science and literature/writing. I have absolutely no doubt that watching Mr. Wizard every day on Nickelodeon is part of my deep, ineffable love of science.

I'm old enough to remember his old black and white show. (as re-runs)
