No time to write much, as I'm actually attempting to study (i.e. read all required readings the night before class because I didn't study at all this past week).
Just wanted to mention that I went to a talk yesterday during lunch called "Shrinking the Malaria Map." At one point, while talking about the financial crisis and plans for a bailout, the speaker said, "that should be approved February or March of next year, under President Obama." Pause for cheers and applause.
