[Sign of the Times] - James Stewart

Ever heard of James Stewart? Well his name is on 80% of all Calculus books sold in North America. And when that happens, the money comes pouring in.

Eighty percent market share?! I thought the US was the land of free-enterprise, capitalism, competition. What about all those free, open-source calculus books: they can save the schools a lot of money! I think that somewhere high up in the tree someone is pushing one particular book through everyone's throat.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
