RIP James Randi
August 7, 1928 – October 20, 2020
A fierce defender of reality and foe of all woo.

If he comes back to haunt Uri Gellar, does Gellar get the million bucks?

He came to campus when I was in college. We got him to do a few sounders for the radio station. He influenced me to become a skeptic. RIP.

I don't think I really know this man, but I found a good quote

As a longtime fan of Randi and the Skeptics Society, etc. I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I thought it died a few years ago. But I think I'm confusing that with when he finally came out of the closet.

Either way, RIP.
