One silver lining

One positive outcome from the whole Larry Summers mess is that Derek Bok will be taking over as interim president in July. Bok is perhaps best known for being the father of former Harvard Ultimate Frisbee captain Tom Bok. Tom's Ultimate skill and general sense of style are well depicted in these photos.

With a supporter of Harvard Ultimate at the helm, hopefully the team can secure increased funding for the future and have a say in the planning for the Allston campus. The artists' renditions that I've seen of the future Allston campus show some sort of canal bisecting the intramural sports fields, where the team usually practices. Clearly these plans cannot stand, unless they're planning on giving the team its own indoor FieldTurf practice facility.

Gotta strike while the iron is hot...
