Peter's column is great. When Wendy Wasserstein passed away, and he wrote a tribute to her, I wrote to him and he answered. That impressed me that he would take time to respond. I'm sure he's a busy man.
We returned home from Palau early this morning. We were there for a month with a group from the college where I work. The kids had a great time, but all of us are glad to be home. If you ever have a chance to go, Palau's Rock Islands are out of this world, and there are 1400 species of shallow water fish to see when you're snorkeling plus turtles, dugongs, stingrays, eels, etc. when you're a scuba diver (I'm not!).
