Insurance people came—not a bad response time. They’ll pay for repainting, and they’re investigating the leak.

My Putnam seminar, which had been holding steady at about three attendees (a good size for a problem solving class), had no one in it today. Not sure whether they’re not finding it useful (and I can’t expect accurate answers if I ask them myself: they’d shade their answers to avoid offending me), have conflicts (at least one of them was in a makeup class in the adjacent room), or were just exhausted. Emailed Dezso to ask him to ask people who were interested.
