Tonight's lead obituary in The New York Times

"Patricia Neal, the molasses-voiced actress who won an Academy Award and a Tony but whose life alternated surreally between triumph and tragedy, died at her home in Edgartown, Mass., on Sunday. She was 84 and lived in Manhattan and Martha’s Vineyard."

Related philosophical remark—

…Heaven and Hell relays— Your team starts in Hell. When you get one right, one person can go to Heaven and work on Heaven questions, but first they have to pass through Purgatory. (This means entertain  the people running Purgatory.)

A happy Mathcamper defines Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory—

…Heaven and Hell relays. your team starts in hell, when you get one right, one person can go to heaven and work on heaven questions, but first they have to pass through purgatory. aka this means entertain the people running purgatory. for me this meant dancing in the middle of the gym. i danced and sung the YMCA, which they deemed sufficient (thankfully).

Note in the Mathcamp schedule the Friday night Shabbat dinner and the religious activity on Sunday— a "mini-puzzle hunt."
