My apologies for all the politics — the rain and a busy schedule has cut into my ability to get out and visit things and bring back lots of nice pics. Instead, it’s been all Shih, all the time, here at the View. But normal life resumes tomorrow — my job at the university resumes (met my new advisees today, a great bunch of adult students), and I am beginning a PHD program down south as well. More fodder for the blog!
