CHICAGO - A “Dia de los Muertos” shrine at Rick Bayless’ Frontera Grill restaurant pays homage to Amy Winehouse, along with other celebrities who died in the past year. While Liz Taylor and Peter “Columbo” Falk were also among those honored, shockingly Dutch particle accelerator physicist Simon van der Meer (1925-2011) was totally omitted from the display! 
Mr. Van der Meer, wherever you are, fear not - your contributions that led to the discovery of two of the most fundamental particles of matter - the W and Z bosons - might have been forgotten by Rick Bayless, but they’ll never be forgotten by the rest of us.
