SMU Medal of Freedom award in March. Neat. Ought to go nicely with the new George W. Bush library being built there as we speak. I am trying to be open minded about this since some of my neighbors here in Santa Fe are SMU alumni as well as my, um, partner, but this is a little grating. SMU is such a wonderful school, under rated and mismanaged, but good despite itself. If I am in town I think I will go to the lecture and ceremony. Can't hurt. Heard Obama when he was in Santa Fe recently, so why not listen to both sides, that is one of my boring mottos.
