I just heard that Jaime Escalante (the math teacher featured in the film "Stand and Deliver" died of cancer this morning. I heard it on NPR, a reliable news network. May he RIP.

Ihad never heard of him before the movie. But, it's one of my favorites because he was so inspiring. How lucky and privileged his students were. An amazing man. R.I.P.
