Donald Knuth's tribute to Robert Floyd highlights the December SIGACT News. Also reviews of a bunch of crypto books, a column on sublinear-time algorithms and the complexity theory column on "Post's Lattice with Applications to Complexity Theory."
In my mailbox yesterday was not one but five copies of SIGACT News shrink-wrapped together. Once I unwrapped them and looked at the labels, only the outer one belonged to me. There were two for other professors in my department, one for our library and one for the library of Loyola University Chicago, which is on the other side of the city. I'm not sure if it was a mistake or some attempt by the ACM to reduce mailing costs, but I hope this is a one-time occurrence.
