I want to thank all who are signing the guestbook for their contributions. It's a kick to read the comments and inspiring to see the caliber of people logging in; some real heavyweights there. I miss all you guys, and hope someday my students get to experience what you have to offer.
On a lighter note, I had to laugh seeing two of the more recent entries, from the fearsome "Dr. Death" to "Immortal Mikey." I almost felt like I'd entered the realm of Mortal Kombat. Sorry Mikey, you may be a painless wonder to us mere mortals, but I think "DD" has the moves to get even your slumbering nerve endings to wake up and dance! The guy's a gentle giant with a PhD in Pain. No one had my back better at Mardi Gras than him!
