DH just called from outside what he described as a "really happenin' biophysics party." I delivered some exciting news from the home front: I found the isopropanol (yey!) and I'm still working on the same batch of spaghetti. I'm sure you all wanted to know that...
Before I shut down for the night and go read some Agnon, a few things I think are worth looking at:
Cathy Young on the Gibson controversy, and Martin Kramer on Jewish philanthropy and Middle Eastern studies.
