What fun! minikin and Critter and I took a campus tour today, my first in many years. Critter is seriously considering Cornell (along with Dartmouth and Caltech) for college, and the University was in good form today. The weather was warm but not as hot as it's been, so it was good for walking. I can't say I learned a lot (one or two fun tidbits), but I really enjoyed the tour guide's wit and personality. He really engaged the students and some of the parents, and seemed to be having a good time. Too many of the guides I've seen in the past seem to be doing it by rote because it's their job, or making stuff up as they go along.
