Dear “What Good Are”:

Could you have tea for two without the two? Or three blind mice without the three? Or four corners of the Earth without the four?  Numbers are beautiful, and this is a good enough reason to have them.  But they are also useful in life, in science, in art. I guess you already know this, but can you think of your life without your phone numbers, your address, your age?
