Photos of readers

Jeff King came to visit me, but I was gone. It was nice of him to show up at my lab complex, and I’m sorry I missed him. But that at least provided a reader photo; Jeff’s notes are below, with a kind encomium:

As you know, I’ve been a loyal follower for years. On this momentous day several months ago while traveling from Shipshewana to Tucson, I surreptitiously found my way to the door of your inner sanctum. Thank you for persistently using rational thought to explore issues of the day.

    1. The carpet is an escaping flat bear slithering out (with rear legs dragging) from under Prof JAC’s secret installation.

  1. Aaaaw, Mr King ! .That ‘ne. IS a lovely panegyric !

    Where the heck is Shipshewana ? ! and how is
    it properly stated out loud ? ! I know that
    I could look it up; I just like learning new
    – to – me pronunciations from out of the
    mouths or pens or keyboards of their users !

    Permanently you in Tucson now ? or was that
    trek a visit there ?


  2. Shipshewana is in northern Indiana. Being from northern Indiana myself, I pronounce it ship-sheh-wana. (with “wana” pronounced like the name “Lana”)

  3. This seems to be a deja vu here. I remember seeing this photo some time ago. Anyway, nice to see you again I think.

  4. Yep, that looks like the door to any university office I’ve seen. I probably know what it smells like in that hallway too; the pleasant smell of books and a slight mustiness.

    Cool photo.

    1. Gee, I’ve been in universities most of my life, and never rated an office door with a notice “Door alarmed! Police will be called! Do not enter if red light is on!”

      1. Well…you got me there. I was more noticing the blond wood color, the little window, and the steel plate at the base to protect the door (I know there’s a name for that…kick plate?).

  5. I am surprised they allow paper notices on fire doors – we are technically not supposed to have paper notices on corridor walls unless behind glass!

    Anyway, at least we know now that the Coyne Lab is not just a figment of our collective imagination! 🙂
