There are several ways to become a member of the Columbia College community. One is to actually attend the College, sit through at least 124 credit hours, and four years later (or less if you're particularly bright) graduate with a degree. Another way is to marry a Columbian, which prior to 1984 was the only way for a woman (why she would want to, now that's a mystery). You could receive an honorary degree, I guess, but it's not a path one can depend upon. Finally, I think the nicest way is to be born into it.

Which leads me to announce the birth of Joseph Facciano Diller, the son of Bradley R. Diller and Pauline R. Facciano (UC Berkeley). Bradley, his wife and son reside in San Francisco, one of the country's greatest cities. I'm sure Bradley and Pauline are extraordinarily proud of their son, and are right now debating Berkeley vs. Columbia (which debate is most likely the product of sleep deprivation). Didn't we play them in football about a million years ago, or am I confusing them with Stanford? In any event, we wish them the best with Joseph and wish them every happiness.

It was a quiet summer in Washington, D.C., a little hotter and drier than normal. Hope to hear from more of you in the fall.
