David's visit was a big success. His seminar on Radiant Pluralism was quite brilliant. We did it as an interview, but it turned into a wonderful improvised and highly digressive monologue with a few questions interrupting him from time to time. His reading in the evening charmed my undergraduate students who attended. As I am to my least prepared graduate students (more erudite, etc...), David Shapiro is to me. That's not quite right... I am better at David at one thing: I will beat him in a reticence contest any day.
