Very interesting, Rob! And, kudos to the Princeton bound student! What an accomplishment!
I did my graduate work at Princeton in 66 - 67. Glad to see he'll be there. Of course he's gonna love those Jersey winters. Can you say slush?
Hooray for Princeton...Hooray for Princeton...Hooray for Princeton....'cause Harvard SUCKS!
