N. David Mermin, Cornell University: "Spooky Actions at a Distance?" - April 12, 2007
Einstein's real complaint about the quantum theory was not that it required God to play dice, but that it failed to "represent a reality in time and space, free from spooky actions at a distance."

I will assume no background in q
