Proud to be an... Columbian?

No, not Colombian.  Though they do make fine coffee, and uh, *other* exports.  I got an e-mail from the President today.  No, not *that* President.

President Bollinger from Columbia University.  I don't mention it much in day to day life, because out here on the West Coast, people haven't even heard of Columbia!  How crazy is that?  Shouldn't everyone know the 8 Ivy League schools off the top of their head?  (Yes.  And Brown is the one you're forgetting...)  Well, good 'ole Lee (that's what we call him) sent out the expected note that one of our OWN (no, I'm not Black) was elected to the highest office in the land (world?).  President Elect Barack Obama is a Columbia College grad just like me.  

Well, he transfered in, but that's still pretty hard to do right?

Yesterday was a historic day in American History.  Now let's see what we can do with all this change...
