Happy Birthday Tony!

So, my brother is a year older today . . .

On an completely unrelated note, from a NY Times article:
“My parents are actually worried about retaliation against Asians,” said Lyu Boaz, a third-year accounting student who was born in South Korea and became an American citizen a year ago. “After 9/11, a lot of Arabs were attacked for that reason.”

Mr. Boaz, a resident adviser at Pritchard Hall, said many Korean-American students had left campus immediately. Parents of other Korean-American students were preparing to pick up their children on Tuesday afternoon and take them home.
It saddens me that our country, particularly at an institute of higher learning, is still at a place where people have to be concerned about being judged strictly by their ethnicity.
