Random numbers should not be generated with a method chosen at random.”   —   Donald Knuth

(I’m certainly not going to argue with Don!  He’s a mathematician and computer scientist at Stanford University, so he definitely knows what he’s talking about.  But, boy!  I struggled mightily to solve this cryptoquote.  I was 90 something % sure that the L was the A, but I spun my wheels on this for a long, long time.  I also was correct seeing the C as the E, but that wasn’t enough for me, for quite a while.  Finally, I was able to see the word METHOD, and that solidified all my other suspicions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
