Happy Birthday, Christy!

Today remains Tuesday, 8 July 2008.

Sometimes, one becomes so entangled in the horrors of the present one neglects the beauties of the past.

HH thanks Nancy for reminding him that today is the birthday of Christy, who has been our dear friend since the Ford Administration.

Long ago, when HH was undercover, posing as a mild-mannered library archivist, Christy was the only student who worked with him for all four years of her undergraduate career.

When one works at university, one must reconcile oneself to the fact that, students, like children, will one day take glorious wing and fly the nest. One doesn't like it, but there it is.

Christy was the most gifted of my students, and had, and has, the finest heart.

Thank you for these many years of friendship.
