Going back, going back...

Keepin-it-rio-7-9-16final Among the many reasons I have been pleased with the last thee Supreme Court nominees is the interesting common fact that they all graduated from Princeton University, which just happens to all be my alma mater.  Indeed, I am very soon to be going back to Old Nassau for a long weekend of festivities.  Though I hope to be on-line every so often, blogging will likely be light until Tuesday.

I have the honor to be on an Alumni-Faculty forum panel on the topic of "Civil Liberties in the Obama Administration" taking place starting at 10:30am on Saturday, May 29 in McCosh 28 on the Princeton University campus.  I plan at that forum to continue complaining about President Obama's failure to make any use of his historic clemency powers and to lament more generally the very little amount of "hope and change" that the Obama Administration has so far brought to modern federal criminal justice system.

Rumor has it that Mrs. Michelle Obama, who this year is due to celebrate her 25th reunion from Princeton University, is not making it up to New Jersey to join in the traditional Princeton reunion festivities.  Too bad, as I was eager to see what it would be like to see members of the US Secret Service marching in the (in)famous P-rade.

Here is a fun game to play while walking around the old haunts at dear old Princeton.

It is a scavenger hunt, but very challenging.

Find an American student. If that is not challenging enough, bump up the difficulty level. Find a male, American student.

To PI: The Princeton University website will have photographs and video of the 2010 Reunions and Commencement exercises, though I'm not sure when. FYI to SCOTUS fans: Justice Ginsburg was at Commencement to receive an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree.

And to SC: My two sons, their Princeton roommates and friends (many of whom are male Americans, as if that mattered to anyone but you) would find your ignorant rant sadly pathetic.
