Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty Mathematician of the week

A quotation for today

Ronald Fisher (1890 - 1962)

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking hm to perform a postmortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

Indian Statistical Congress, Sankhya, ca 1938.
