Well, it's that time of the season when the youth of America return to the grind of academic studies. I always enjoyed my many years of university life and it wasn't all academics. There were a rash of imported films by Antononi, Bergman, Fellini, Godard, and Kourisawa...promptly followed by lively esoteric discussions at Mike's Tavern or Kelly's Bar in ole KC or a long forgotten pub in the "windy city". Take it from uncles Mercury and Tim that academics are fine and valuable, but have some fun too. Good wishes to all students. And special wishes of success to Bruna de Oliveria and Andie Byrnes...I expect to review those Ph.D. theses soon...physics and Egyptology.
