…come perilously close to the truth. Nanny Bloomberg insists that breast is best.
. . . is assuming that people who sleep more than 2.5 hours longer in the morning than I do have a character flaw. Lazy bums.
. . . six years past his own self-advertised sell-by date. Born, 1942. 64 in 2006. Now 70.
I just dropped #1 Niece off for a day of camp at the Baylor School (we’re McCallie people, but McCallie doesn’t offer girls camps and GPS’s camps are too early for my sister to send her down here to the grandparents).
Baylor painted big red paws on the drive in to campus (shades of Clemson and Auburn).
However, if their mascot is supposed to be a predator, shouldn’t the paw prints be headed OUT the drive towards prey rather than IN, as though the big cat is slinking home?
It’s not that I’m in favor of Nazis – let alone tattoos! But really, if a young Russian is in a metal band of COURSE he will have lots of tattoos. And then he becomes an opera singer . . . and the Bayreuth Festival doesn’t want him to sing because of the lamentable association between Wagner, his descendants, the Festival, and anti-semitism.
The article on CNN has no pictures, so I googled. Yes, Evgeny Nikitin has a lot of tattoos, but you have to go to the second page to see the swastika on his chest. It wouldn’t show in performance, but Bayreuth is queasy just that audiences would KNOW Nikitin has a swastika. Is that an overreaction?
A 1959 Penn State graduate, Garban worked at the university for 33 years, the last 12 as treasurer and senior vice president for finance and operations. Alumni first elected him to the board of trustees in 1998.
. . . that art thieves substitute a copy for the original! The FBI has just recovered a Matisse that was stolen that way.
. . . to Gulf Shores!

Coolness! Physics Nobel Laureate Leon Lederer answering questions on a Manhattan street corner. I’m not certain that his answer to “What is the Strong Force?” is really complete, but it still gets me further than I was before.
They aren’t the Debt-Industrial Complex, because that might imply they MADE something. Read this one, from Professor Bainbridge. Heads might roll. Starting with Tim Geithner.
There’s never a really good time to be away, somehow. I’m very much looking forward to not being department chair!
I’m off tomorrow to Gulf Shores, Alabama, to stay with childhood friends and then to my parents for 10 days. Tricky packing! Beach and Chattanooga. And I have to take various gifties brought back from Italy, some stuff from up here, etc. Oh, well. I can always buy more underwear there!
