PI DAY, BABY…. It’s March 14, and that means one thing: Pi Day.
Congress designated today as the official Pi Day to help promote math education. So, I feel some obligation to acknowledge the occasion.
In case you missed it, my friend Rachel Maddow had a fun little segment on the subject last night:
By the way, if you’re curious about the roll-call vote that Rachel mentioned on the Pi Day resolution, it’s right here. “Who votes no on Pi Day?” As it turns out, 10 Republicans do. I suspect most of them didn’t have as clever a rationale as the one offiered by Utah’s Jason Chaffetz. (If even one of the 10 suggests pi should just be rounded down to three, I support immediate expulsion. Who’s with me?)
