That is horrible news indeed.
WM must be the most successful crank I've ever seen. He *teaches* and *publishes* his delusions! How remarkable and how regrettable.
(Yes, Abian was well-respected as a mathematician, but did not teach or publish his cranky "discoveries", as far as I know.)
So who the hell published a WM textbook?
