David Walton SUPERSYMMETRY To Karen My theory of everything PROLOGUE Jacob Kelley spent the last minutes of his life at a baseball game. He hadnt been to Citizens Bank Park in years, not since his children were young, and he reveled in the vivid hue of the brightly lit Kentucky bluegrass, the low roar of the crowd, the squeak of hinged seats, and the smell of popcorn and beer.
