Words to Ponder

[Ricky] Jay has an anomalous memory, extraordinarily retentive but riddled with hard-to-account-for gaps. "I'm becoming quite worried about my memory," he said not long ago. "New information doesn't stay. I wonder if it's the Nutra-Sweet."

--from the article "Secrets of the Magus", by Mark Singer, New Yorker Magazine

Coincidentally, Jimmy Akin posted some of Ricky Jay's slight of hand today as well. A good showman, full of the esoteric.
