APS News Insults Two Texas Cities, Simultaneously

How could you?! The ISEF met in Fort Worth, as the article (October 1998 APS News) states. How did Dallas get into the headline? Shame on you and the other editors. We in Fort Worth are very sensitive about this. But, maybe it all goes back to the Washington meeting being held in Baltimore, or the New York meeting (who remembers that) being held whereever, or something like that. Editor's Note: The printed version had referred to Dallas erroneously]

"Feynman Fish" Offends Members

Editor's note: Several members were offended by the designation "Feynman Fish" on one of the bumper sticker entries in the October 1998 'Zero Gravity.' They felt that it mocked the Christian symbol of the fish, whose spelling in Greek "Ichtus" is an acronym for "Iesous Christos Theou Huios Soter," or "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior." APS News apologies for this inadvertant offense. A better description of the graphic might be "Feynman Diagram."
