I felt that the timing was intentionally poor, as it came after two major university weekends (Commencement and Reunions), so that no parents or alumni would be upset before potentially making contributions. A Sunday morning in June also showed that they were trying to avoid the news cycle a bit and possibly hoping to slip this under some people's radars (as if).


More importantly, I think the Rector's comments were not at all open or transparent in any way. She said a lot of words, yet managed to communicate almost nothing.

I am very much an Oxford comma person and I refuse to give it up.

This is why I do not allow anonymous comments on my blog. If you're going to say it, you should own it.

In general, I've found that comments on news sites tend to be mostly idiotic, rude, or crude, so I never read them.

Yes! Many questions!

#1 - What Jane said in her comment about FB.

#2 - What is Klout and why should I care?

#3 - I'm on Google+ now. Why is that important and, again, why should I care?

#4 - What is this livefyre commenting stuff you've got going on here? (For me, multiple steps, just to leave a comment.)

Looking forward to learning much from you, as always. Thank you!

We have gone through two periods of time during which we did not take vacations. Never again. Vacations are vital to one's mental and physical health. It's great to get away from it all.

In general, my family has three vacations a year: spring break (we might or might not go away, but we are OFF that week), a summer vacation (we usually go away for 10 days or so), and Christmas break (we're home for two weeks of wonderful down time). The spacing is such that we get some time off every four months, which is usually when we desperately need it.
