As of 4:30 yesterday, it is official: I'm Stephen M. Ross-bound. In exchange for a fairly hefty deposit, I got six nice coasters. They are branded-leather and look really sharp. Can you tell that I'm bitter? When I was admitted to U-M as an undergrad I got a t-shirt and dinner for myself and my parents.
Another thing is official - spring has arrived. There are flowers blooming and trees budding all over Ann Arbor. This, of course, has no effect on the students here, and to celebrate the arrival of the fairest of the seasons I've got a full docket of meetings and homework to crank out during the day today.
