Mathematicians (lists, Liste) are strange people. Some do not go out of the house without their spider brooch like VILLANI (Ger., Eng.), do not go out at all like PERELMAN (Ger., Eng.), or have been out, but turned around & went back in, like GROTHENDIECK (Ger., Eng.). Others, like HAMILTON (Ger., Eng.), feel the need to write formulae on innocent bridges (Eng.), or built mathematical bridges (Ger., Eng.).
I am glad that I am not a mathematician.
Today is election day in Bavaria, the local mayors, members of the village council, members of the Kreistag, the county concil, and the Landrat, the head of the district authority, will be chosen from the hand-picked elite of the crème de la crème of party members by the sovereign – me for example. The all so democratic parties made sure that no independents may have a chance and the oh so well balanced lists make sure that the usual Großkopferte will reach their positions, no surprises there, no worries.
The Bavarian electoral procedure allows the single voter to give more than one vote to a person, up to three. I will step out now and brave the cold winds on my way to the poll site, and throw my votes on those worth to be elected, jawoll : I can count to three, yes I can.
And until told the result of that exciting local elections, one can have a cup of Black Coffee, served by Carroll GIBBONS (Eng.; videos) and Marjorie STEDEFORD (Eng.) – I’d really like to hear more of her interesting voice.
I hope you enjoy the music & have a good week.
