June 13, 2007: Don "Mr. Wizard" Herbert

Mr. Wizard, who started teaching science on TV when TVs were little tiny black-and-white things, is dead at 89. Read the excellent L.A. Times obituary. As befitted a man of science, Mr. Wizard kept up with technology; a new generation of kids watched him in color on Nickelodeon, and when the Web came along, he created Mr. Wizard Studios. By making science fun, he left the world a smarter place.
