First of all, I extend the warmest congratulations to my friend Dr. Coleman Baker for the successful defense of his dissertation this week. He is refusing the title until May 8 when the degree is actually conferred, but if it’s good enough for the faculty at Brite to give him the title, it is good enough for me.

I have had a very, very successful and productive week of research, bringing years of study to completion. It feels so good.
