Moishe Horwitz Birthday
Today is the birthday of Moishe Horwitz,
inventor of the Moishe Horwitz Theory of Pedagogy, which holds that "If
people do stupid things, hit them on the head with a hammer, or stick
your finger in their eye, and their learning curve will improve."
Together with his brothers, Jerome and Shemuel, and another
philosopher named Lawrence Feinstein, Moishe made a series of
educational films released by Columbia Studios, which still remain
popular on TV re-runs and videos.
In 1997, using advanced computer enhancement, Prof. Timothy F.X.
Finnegan, in association with de Selby, proved that the contraversial
"face on Mars" is actually Moishe Horwitz, whose influence can now be
shown on two planets. [See, "Brooklyn Sage Memorialized on Mars," by
Finnegan & deSelby, *Proceedings of the Royal Sir Myles na gCopaleen
Astro-Anomalistic Society*, XXIII, 17]
Hail Moe! His heritage lives on.
