“Proof,” the David Auburn play, is staged at the Flagler Playhouse, 301 E Moody Blvd, Bunnell. 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $20. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Tony Award for Best Play and Drama Desk for Best Play. David Auburn’s first play is a play about family, mental health and math. Catherine, a grad student in mathematics, has found a solution to a previously unsolvable proof. At the same time she has been caring for her father, a brilliant mathematician in decline. With the proof as a fulcrum, Catherine must come to terms with her discovery and her father’s legacy. This show contains foul language.
Notably: Nelly Bly, as woke a journalist as ever was one (before the term’s ascendancy as, of all things, a derogation), was born on this day in 1864. Her actual name was Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman. A human rights advocate and a reformist who focused on insane asylums, she was made famous by the Steven Foster song, and in 1889 went around the world in 72 days, beating Phileas Fogg’s and Passepartout ‘s record by eight days.

If constitutionalism–the common respect for the framework of law, and the acceptance of outcomes under due process–fails, or is rejected by significant sections of the society, then the entire framework of American society would collapse as well. It is in this sense that the last remaining ‘exceptionalism’ must persist.
–From “The End of American Exceptionalism” by Daniel Bell, National Affairs, Fall 1975. .
The lawyer who leaked this draft opinion showed more integrity than any lawyer at the Supreme Court since Roger Baldwin appeared on behalf of the Amistad prisoners.
