Going back...

I was back in Princeton briefly and gave a small talk and met with my book editor. Of course, things don’t change there (except for the last remaining non-gentrified restaurant in town going upscale). Yes, Princeton is pretty, but the place still gives me the willies. But my editor did point out to me the pre-aged statue they added.

You’d think, if anything, Princeton has time on its side. But this classic is only a few years old and was installed with patina already fixed.

Princeton also has their own label on bottled water for speakers. It’s amazing what a $9.9 billion endowment will get you.

Heh. I took a photo of that same statue, I think perhaps the same day. Are you an alumnus?
