I have a dim memory of a comment by the authors of a science textbook, stating that they had attempted to avoid making any statements that were not entirely true, and describing how difficult this had been. My attempts to find the quotation with Google, the Oxford Dictionary of Scientific Quotations, and Gaither’s Dictionary of Scientific Quotations have all failed. It was probably an undergraduate textbook in physics, chemistry or biology.

Recently, someone described a 10-volume mathematics textbook series to me. The books were written by a single author, an engineer with a name that sounded Greek, and came with full worked solutions to every single problem, making them ideal for self study. Unfortunately, they could not remember its title, and my attempts to find it with Google and Amazon have failed. Has anyone come across this series?

ProposedAlabamaBookBanFilter -- As mentioned in the Blue, there is a piece of legislation proposed by Alabama State Representative, Gerald Allen, that seeks to ban "novels with gay protagonists and college textbooks that suggest homosexuality is natural" from publically-funded schools and libraries. If Mr. Allen's bill survives committee and passes, I cringe to consider just which literary classics would disappear from the shelves of Alabama libraries. Which, if any, of your favorites will become suddenly verboten?
