When I finish teaching today just after noon, I'll walk back to the Administration building and down the hallway to my office. On the way I'll walk past Dr Jones teaching calculus, Dr Rotundo-McCord teaching history, and Dr Serban teaching Political Science. It is so great to be back at Xavier, and to be teaching with so many talented colleagues. So thank you to all of those who made reopening Xavier possible, especially the students. I just wanted to write down something positive before tonight's State of the Union Address, as I have no doubt that I'll be depressed for days to come.
