Sidney Coleman: anniversary

The late physicist of physicists, Sidney Coleman, was born in Chicago 74 years ago, on March 7th, 1937.

I will leave the memorial minute to N. Arkani-Hamed, A. Jaffe, and H. Georgi who just wrote a text for some Harvard newspapers:

Thanks to Willie Soon

I won't write a special article but the Tevatron has managed to see the rarest pre-Higgs process, the production of Z-boson pairs. It was described as the "electroweak buZZ" in Fermilab Today. Ten events of this kind have been seen. In some sense, they're very unlucky that it will be closed at this point.
