Letters to the Editor

Thanks for Einstein


I'd like to congratulate the editor and John Passant for making Einstein's thoughts available to a wide audience.

We need statements like his to guide our thinking in these confusing times: Einstein is simple, straighforward and accessible.

Thanks again.

Alf Liebhold
