On behalf of the Other Sherry, I have an announcement to make.

David Curp, her beloved, was unanimously approved for tenure by the voting members of his department at Ohio University in Athens yesterday. Finally - after 18 years of relentless work! David is one of the foremost Polandnists of his generation, an expert on post World War II "population transfers" (that's ethnic cleansing to you and me)and a convert to Catholicism. His next research project is on the life of the Catholic laity in post war Poland.

Dave happens to be in New Orleans today where he is giving a paper at a professional gathering but what a place to celebrate! Have some beignet, jambalaya, and pralines for me, Dave!

To the tune of "You did it!" from My Fair Lady

Congratulations,Professor Curp,
For your glorious victory!
Congratulations, Professor Curp!
You'll be mentioned in history!

Sherry W singing counterpoint:

This evening, sir, you did it! You did it! You did it!
You said that you would do it And indeed you did.
This evening, sir, you did it! You did it! You did it!
We know that we have said it,
But-you did it and the credit
For it all belongs to you!


Well - you and Sherry, your beloved, and all your academic mentors and we, your friends who gave you psychic support, and your guardian angel and the communion of saints and the Holy Spirit and . . . but I digress!

Congratulations, Daoud!

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service.
