Visiting “my” kids away at school is perhaps the most enjoyable parts of my job. Sunday night and Monday night I had dinner with twenty-three (!) of them in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Bloomington, Indiana. They and I appreciated the good food – I don’t fly across the country to dine at MacDonald’s – but the conversation was even better, getting caught up on social lives, classes, and the college experience in general. I’ve already been to Muhlenberg this year – where the percentage of the student body from Temple B’nai Abraham must be astounding – and head to Wisconsin in a couple of weeks, with Penn State, Syracuse, Maryland and other schools to come. Hopefully, I’ll also make it to UC Berkeley and UMass Amherst, where there happen to be students who share my last name!
