I was just flipping through the CRC handbook when the opening pages caught my eye. It's a list of the collaborators and contributors for this edition. What struck me as I skimmed the list was the locations of those who made this edition possible: the U.S., Canada, England, and Israel. The orderly framework of Judeo-Christianity has done wonders for science. May the unique relationships between Western nations (especially American-Israeli relationships) continue, and strengthen.
