Good news for all you triskaidekaphobia sufferers. Underwood Dudley, professor emeritus of mathematics at DePauw University in my home state, Indiana, says no more Fridays on the 13th day of the month for 2011. He says three is the most we can have, and we can't have any years with none. I'm glad there are smart people in our world to help us figure this out. Anyway . . . deep sighs, we made it through Friday-the-13th, 2011, and we're good for the rest of year. Ah, I feel better already.
