And Speaking of Scalps

Add another to the long, long list of U of C Nobelists … (hat tip: Bill Roule). Any doubts that everyone’s favorite major South Side university can credit itself with this one are dispelled by this telling passage:

… although he wasn’t socially adept, “I fit right in,” [Wilczek] recalled. “It was fortunate to me that the U. of C. didn’t stress sociality,” he joked.

The dweebs are inheriting the Earth.

  1. Even more significant than another (yawn) Nobelist added to the rolls:

    UofC was a category on Jeopardy yesterday.

  2. Wilczek was there when I was there, but I was a fourth and fifth year (I am not in line for any prizes) student. I do not recall having meet him, but I did not take any physics or math courses after my gen ed requirements.

    Another tale from a wasted life. sigh.
