BROKEN WAND :: MARTIN GARDNER

From many sources, I learned today of the passing of one of magic's great thinkers, Martin Gardner.  Thanks to John Houdi's post on Facebook, I was reminded of the episode of "The Nature of Things" which focused exclusively on Martin and which I am happy to share with you here. In addition, our friends at iTricks posted a link to the thoughts of Jame's Randi in which he said, "My World is a Little Darker." Thanks to Meir Yedid who shared the link to the official AP obituary which you can read HERE. Richard Kaufman posted a link to the Huffington Post obituary and to what I see as one of the best so far from the NY Times.
