Two From Caltech
I live fairly close to Caltech. By several reckonings, none of them having to do with football, it is the finest university in the United States. I visit occasionally to paint, and more frequently for musical performances. I used to folkdance weekly. I've heard wonderful speakers there, including Stephen Jay Gould and Ralph Nader. Nader spoke about how, lacking in public funds, universities tend to become bound to corporate interests. Gould spoke about evolution and the marvels of life.
