Well, I got home tonight and realized I left my laptop in the Woodson. This means a short post because I am far from adept with this newfangled iPad, but frankly my day was a bit of a circus so it’s probably all for the best anyway.
What I do have for you are two delightful pictures of George H.W. Bush at a Rice football game, the first a bold sartorial display with a happy Malcolm Gillis and the second with a bunch of kids outside the stadium. From everything I’ve seen and heard these are characteristic of the kindness and sense of fun he consistently brought with him to campus. As always, I’m grateful to Tommy LaVergne, who sent me these photos.
