I am just wondering why only half the list of winners is included? It seems like someone just selected the names that were not of a western background....

Bob Comments: Feel free to add the western names, particularly if you think "half" are missing. Hyperbole to make a point. Asian and Indians as a percent of US population are disproportionately well-represented in math, science and other academic or intellectual contests. One might ask why that is...

Amazing.

Re : There's something curious about that list...can't quite put my finger on it...
