Tulane Talk is back for another season!
I hope you all had an opportunity to relax and enjoy the summer. Margie, Gibson and I finally spent some time together at our home on the eastern end of Long Island. I did a lot of reading (Tour of Duty by Douglas Brinkley, Plan of Attack by Bob Woodward and a re-read of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged), writing (speeches and opinion pieces), boating and fishing (I actually caught my largest striped bass ever - 31 lbs), and exercising (a never ending task). Mentally and physically, I am definitely ready for another fast-paced, exciting year.
This week we welcome another group of talented undergraduate, graduate and professional students to the university. The academic profiles of these students are exceptional and a testimony to the increasing reputation of the university, resulting from the work of all of you. More on these students in next week's Tulane Talk.
As always, I look forward to seeing you at various functions this fall. In the meantime, enjoy the weekend.
