A couple of good days……

 

   Field Yesterday I heard that my friend Rex was appointed the interim provost at Eastern Washington University in Spokane.  He and his wife Susan are two really remarkable people.  I met them when I worked at Colorado State University in Pueblo where he was the Dean of Business.  I have been in higher education long enough to know that Rex was one of those rarities in the field who could gain the strong support of his faculty, students and the administration, but who could also make a decision, even if it was a difficult one.  He will be a great provost. 

Tonight we watched “Invictus” – the film about Nelson Mandela and the South African rugby team who won the world championship in the nineties.  What a great film!!!  Definitely one that I will buy and watch over and over.  The message is clearly one where forgiveness triumphs hate and I can listen to that message forever.
