All Is Well With Us

Thank you to everyone who has written in to express concern and support after yet another series of tragic events in Paris. We have been in London for the last several days, and we hope to return home tomorrow.

My fear is that such attacks will occur with ever greater frequency over the coming years.

Update Saturday 8pm: We have now returned to Paris. The flight over was uneventful and on time. There was plenty of traffic on the périphérique on the drive in from Charles de Gaulle airport, and there are people in the streets. Most importantly, we were able to buy a hot-out-of-the-oven baguette from Béchu, our favorite baker. Life will go on for those of us still alive. The death toll is now 128 people.

Update Sunday 12pm: On a sunny, 63° morning people are out and about in stores (food stores are all open on Sunday mornings), in the streets and in the Bois de Boulogne, where we went for our usual run.

    When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
    We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

    D Afraid of a Little Competish

    How Regents Should Reign
    As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
