Miscellanea for 20 July 2009

A Christian friend who also studies snails wrote in a recent e-mail:

I used to be religious, but nowadays my belief is getting weaker. For a biologist it is hard to be religious anyway...
I have bought many cheap books from the David Brown Book Company over the years and am on their mailing list. An e-mail that came today announced several books that are on sale. This was one of them:
The Instruments of Torture, Revised and Updated - by Michael Kerrigan
I am hoping it is the book that is revised and updated.

Finally, here is a photograph I took of the sculpture of Jan Karski on the campus of Georgetown University last Thursday.
