I hope everyone feels good about their jobs and starts thinking about ways to make them useful. Go crazy! Take some initiative! Make the position dynamic and interesting so that the people who come after you are inspired to follow. We could really do a lot to this house this term if people aren't afraid to do it.
Hope everyone is well, and a special thanks to Kate for maintaining the website and blog and what-not...my parents saw the pictures of the event online tonight and called me (lovingly) a "hippie" for wearing sandals with my dress shirt. Oh, parents.
