A BELATED ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
Nine days ago, Nick Pappas posted a comment, but I have been so obsessed with preparing our apartment to sell that I passed over it. My bad. He reminded me that in 1983 he was my TA. Indeed he was, during one the summers when I supplemented my income and escaped boredom by teaching in Harvard's summer school program. [He was actually my TF = Teaching Fellow -- Harvard's term for a TA.] He was then a young man, of course, but time being what it is, he is now presumably approaching sixty. Greetings, Nick. Are you teaching? If so, where? [Lord, I feel like Mr. Chips.] This is one of the greatest pleasures of old age. Nick prepared an extremely neat grade sheet, by the way. I wonder what all those students are now doing.
