And even more important, why does not Bill Gates sponsor 'israeliteknight' to some classes in:

i) Calculus (or even in "CALCULUS!" as applied to ancient Navigation);

ii) Plain and simple statistics (including 'standard deviations');

iii) Clear thinking;

iv) Christian thinking. [Mr 'israeliteknight' stands in rather desperate need of this last, to judge from his missives here at Math-teach or his exegeses at his remarkable website "THE CHRISTIAN PARTY: Father's Manifesto" (].

I vote that A SPECIAL PETITION should be sent to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to make urgent provision for any one of the four things noted above.
