Liquor Tale

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 10:19 AM

From an obituary in today’s Boston Globe  —

“His father, meanwhile, had retired and hoped
to open a liquor store in Brooklyn.

When bureaucratic hurdles made his goal seem unreachable,
an old friend, Anthony Paterno, who ran a grocery and bottling
business in Chicago, persuaded him to try opening a shop there,
where fewer obstacles existed.

Salvatore Terlato enlisted Anthony to help him, and together
they opened the shop, Leading Liquor Marts, in 1955.”

Incommensurability, logoi alogoi, was the first splendor

éd. Quarto
, Gallimard, 1999, p. 100

Logos Alogos  by S. H. Cullinane

“To a mathematician, mathematical entities have their own existence,
they habitate spaces created by their intention.  They do things,
things happen to them, they relate to one another.  We can imagine
on their behalf all sorts of stories, providing they don’t contradict
what we know of them.  The drama of the diagonal, of the square…

to be given this July at the Mykonos conference on mathematics and
narrative. For the drama of the diagonal of the square, see
