Merry Nietzsche/Spivey/Fry/Foucault/Kuti/Riggs/Calvino/Solondz/Ginuwinemas!

I must warn you: I'm no mathlete. That said, by my count at least nine significant cultural icons made their entrance on the 15th day of October. (October is the best month of the year.) Please join me in making virtual merry on Nietzsche/Spivey/Fry/Foucault/Kuti/Riggs/Calvino/Solondz/Ginuwinemas, y'all.
