This random fact concerning an advancement in science was tucked well inside my daily paper. It was not on the front page, still it was there. I only had to walk to the end of my driveway to retrieve my copy, delivered each morning for a reasonable fee, and I got to learn about an amazing array of things taking place here and abroad that I would never know otherwise, all while I was still in my jammies. I also learned that Safra Catz, the CEO of a company named Oracle, was paid $43.6 million last year. That sounds like a lot, but actually it was down from the $51.7 million she earned the year before. Poor Safra. (Oracle declined to comment.)
Anyway, read a newspaper today and get smarter.
