Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

We've been off visiting colleges (hence the silence here) with my older son, and it has been the usual stressful, but fascinating, experience.  The only certain thing seems to be that however his sister reacted to a college, whether he knows how she felt or not, he will react in almost the opposite way.

But one special event along the way was a real treat.  My wife and I have long enjoyed the Moosewood cookbooks, and have equally long talked about getting to Ithaca and trying out the Moosewood Restaurant.  The day before yesterday, we finally made it, and it was even better than anticipated.  The food was both excellent and interesting, including the tofulafel I had, which sounds a bit weird, but was delicious.  Everybody, including the kids, liked their meals, and it was practically reason enough to make a trip to Ithaca.  Yum!
