So Lawrence is actually a pretty cool town, in all. I didn't really have that much time to really be here since I was busy 7:30 am 9:00 pm most days with my Institute commitments. It is what it is. We had some time today, however, to just hang out. There are, of course, "departmental politics" even among our little group of "leaders" and the young folks (as it were) were definitely at odds with the older folks amongst the leaders (just as among the SI participants).
I'm looking at myself in the mirror above my fancy desk in my fancy if-not-icebox-like room and think I look more like Nixon by the day.
God I hate haircuts.
