Out On A Limn

If I were a rhymer I'd rhyme hymn with limn. In other news, you really get a sense for the bewildering diversity of contemporary physics when a review of a popular survey book designed for a general audience is recommended to heads of physics departments—on the grounds that it will enable them to more easily talk to their staff about their work. (See Peter J. Bussey, "Pressing to the extremes", in Contemporary Physics, Vol. 45, No. 5, September–October 2004, pp. 427–430).
