It's What You Don't Know That You Don't Know

I only just learned, from Wiki., that it’s unclear that the Library at Alexandria was actually destroyed, let alone burned by barbarians, which counts as some sort of ironic meta-meta-meta-ignorance, I think.

But speaking of hot librarians, remember that tonight at 8 all the brainy folk will be at Lolita Bar for our big debate on congestion pricing, which may even involve numbers for a change.

And in other nerd/history news, we bid farewell this week to Ted Key (age ninety-five), the creator of history-touring dog genius Mr. Peabody, among other characters. Set the Wayback Machine for respectful silence.
