Alan Turing

Monday is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing, one of Britain's greatest Geniuses. Prof Jack Copeland suggests that his death may have been an accident rather than suicide as is generally believed.

The Daily Mash has an equally insightful article pointing out that although Turing would not be persecuted today for his homosexuality, he would instead risk a beating simply for being unfashionably clever.

Frank, Monday is 25 June and Alan Turing was born on 23 June according to the article on Wikipedia that you provide a link to. Putting that aside, it is always a good idea to have links to The Daily Mash.
