And a random mathematical tidbit for Wednesday,

in honor of the math test which we will all be scoring (except those of us who have conveniently scheduled doctors appointments for mid-morning) while the children get a 4-day weekend.

How many NCAA brackets would I have to fill out to cover every possible combination?

Borrowed from someone who finds the basketball just as interesting as the math, and who has the right answer. (But don't you want to try it yourself first?)

And while we're on the subject, just who was George Mason, anyway?
At Philadelphia in 1787 Mason was one of the five most frequent speakers at the Constitutional Convention. He exerted great influence, but during the last 2 weeks of the convention he decided not to sign the document.

Because he felt that there were not enough rights for the individual listed within the Constitution's Bill of Rights... if only he knew what was to come he would have left the convention all together....

Go Patriots!
