While we were over @ Bibi and Pop’s (my parents’) house, I read an article in their copy of The Atlantic. It was by Caitlin Flanagan and concerned the January death of Tim Piazza a fraternity pledge @ Penn State.
The article is very anti-Greek and made me realize the extent to which the national media has become opposed to the Greek system. Still, the fraternities have failed to police themselves and I suspect that there will be big changes in the system in the future.

Two books from my online order arrived in the mail. I got Derek Rowntree’s Probability Without Tears and Robert K. Merton, Marjorie Fiske, & Patricia L. Kendall’s The Focused Interview. Happy Day!
I read Rowntree’s Statistics Without Tears last summer and enjoyed it. So, I look forward to reading his take on probability. As for the Merton book, I have become interested in using interviews for my scholarly work, so I’m trying to up my skills.
The best news is that I have many more books in the mail.
