Last chance... see Wachovia signs in the whole country. Wells Fargo has announced that the new signs will be revealed October 17.

Faux obelisk in Winston-Salem

The set of The Brothers Menaechmus (Plautus), currently running at the Wake Forest University Theatre on the Mainstage, features a lovely fake obelisk designed by Mary Wayne-Thomas. Photograph taken by Jon after last Friday's opening. The street signs say "Harbor" and "Forum."

True North Carolina

Friday evening brought the annual Department of Biology barbecue at Tanglewood Park. As has been the case for decades, Professor Peter Weigl made sure that there was enough delicious smoked chopped pork to go around. Before stuffing himself, Nate took pictures of the master and his pork.

The world of topsy-turvey

Paul Krugman nails it in one of his most recent blog posts:

The Susan half of the blog is currently observing a news blackout (the excuse is the need to focus on finishing her book). All she knows is what she reads in the Winston-Salem Journal and in Paul Krugman's blog, plus a few tidbits provided by Jon. No NPR or cable news whatsoever. It's still too much.

The bud was nipped

Still (mentally) wandering around the Easton cemetery on a rainy August afternoon...the style of the time apparently favored more rather than less punctuation, but the period after "Willie" is somehow heartbreaking.

Welcome to Winston Hall

This is the entrance to the Department of Biology at Wake Forest University. Even the undergraduates are beginning to notice that our door is falling apart.

At Stonehill College

If there's a grotto, of course grotto parking is essential!
