You-know-who made me take this photo to commemorate the end of a long journey; successful tenure and promotion to Associate Professor. I received the news yesterday and am as happy as a clam in the sand where no one is digging. One of the papers I published in the process can be found here. Please download the Letters of Gratitude article, as my competitive juices compel me to secure it as one of the top downloaded papers for the journal. Aurgh, so pathetic! To illustrate the importance of all this - Jack took the President's congratulatory letter and turned it into an origami turd ball.
