comment If $X$ is $G$-paradoxical then $G$ is $G$-paradoxical. Is my proof correct?
Sorry if I did not read it in detail, but I guess all is well. And I guess my old hint is acceptable. But, as noted, we are now working on a second edition so if you see anything that is obscure, or could benefit from an elucidating phrase, (or is wrong!) please tell me.

comment Why can a Venn diagram for 4+ sets not be constructed using circles?
Given that it is an MAA journal (nonprofit organization) I don't mind and I doubt anyone would. Still they do own the copyright, so this it not a trivial question. But I won't worry about it.

comment Fractional chromatic number of fullerenes
Checking over my database I found that 3 of the 100-200 fullerenes I examined did not have 5/2... So this is intriguing. If your proof, Angela, holds water, then there will be something funny about these 3 cases. I double-checked with others that my fractional chi is correct on these 3. Example:

comment Fractional chromatic number of fullerenes
The ones I checked are up to 50 vertices. I am told that perhaps things don't get interesting until they are much larger, so maybe there is nothing to this "conjecture" about 5/2.
