Avi Wigderson complains that it will be very difficult to be original here with every submission. "To lower the standards, let me mention the following two personal items. First, one of my favorite poems is `Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening' by Robert Frost. Second, I recently saw a wonderful performance of `King Lear' in the Kirby Shakespeare Theater in Madison, NJ, with a superb Daniel Davis as Lear."
