Honeymoon Pictures!

So, I put up a new photographs page, where I will be linking all my photographs. One of the first sets is our pictures from our honeymoon. We will have pictures from the wedding soon, and I will link those to the same page!

Winthrop Rockefeller

Well, I guess I know how I missed this, because it happened just the day after the wedding, but Winthrop Rockefeller, the Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas, has passed away. Wow. He was just about the same age as my parents. He had a blood disorder, and I remember his family asking people to be tested for bone marrow matches. What a shame. His father single-handedly opened Arkansas politics up to two parties, and in effect brought Arkansas government that much closer to a democracy. I suppose Winthrop could have had a huge impact, if his time weren't cut short.

Back from the honeymoon!

Though there was internet access at the Rusty Parrot, for obvious reasons I resisted the urge to post blogs while on my honeymoon. However, I took loads of pictures (not that kind, William), of us mountain biking and hiking, etc, and I will post them shortly.

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer heat.

Deceiving Headline

I was excited to notice an article in the NYTimes called "How to Educate Young Scientists." However, it was little more than a mention of a problem that is enormous in scope. I suppose every mention is a step in the right direction, but I was left wanting more.
