Happy New Academic Year

Many universities, including my own, begin today. And it is currently 65 degrees (F) and sunny here in Pittsburgh.

Let's hear from the Reverend Professor Simon Darcourt:

"Autumn, to me the most congenial of seasons: the University, to me the most congenial of lives. In all my years as a student and later a university teacher I have observed that university terms tend to begin on a fine day."

(Robertson Davies, The Rebel Angels, 1981).
