Back to School

Levitt and I are off to give a lecture this afternoon at Colgate University. I know that Colgate is a very fine school but I have to admit that I always think of it as the alma mater of the athlete/ humanitarian/ democracy-lover Adonal Foyle, whom I’ve been reading about in the New York Times for years. He has always fascinated me, and I believe he is the only N.B.A. player whose website features a book club, and also a Poetry Corner, with poems by the Foyle himself. (Here is a nice little piece on Foyle by John Mandle, his adopted brother, on the Crooked Timber blog.)

If you happen to be a Colgate student, or in the neighborhood, stop by today and say hello.
