Congrats to Dr. Ames! He is a phenomenal scholar and professor. Sad to see such a tiny mention of this in the paper. You can read 10 pages of analysis on High School or College tiddliwinks (aka sports) but when it comes to a major accomplishment by a unique figure who has actually done something important with his life, you might get a meaningless blurb in the paper. Imagine if the reporting on the super bowl said something like, team x won a game against team y without even telling you which sport it was, what lead up to it, etc.

agree..I had a class from Roger. Very kind and gracious man. National caliber scholar and teacher. Yet the SA wastes our time with a bad and unimportant entertainment program led by Norm Chow? Makes no sense. Support academics at our great university!

Allie, you obviously didnt learn anything from Roger. If you had, you would have interpreted some of his theory and knowledge to understand the intricaticies of the human being and its way of thinking. Please get off your horse, and do something positive.

Allie, I have to agree with golf given your truly shockingly ignorant, abrasive and intolerant statements in many other areas.
