Meanwhile, the Ravens may have found a place in Columbia - a very nice rowhouse. Which would work out splendidly for going to either JHU or UMCP, about a 25 minute drive either way. And I would live with them, which would be beyond splend. They have no pets, are clean, don't drive me batty, and are loads of fun.
Also, I'm scheduling meetings at MIT for March 29, over spring break. It's really nice to be courted by the official Namebrand Department. Academic Ego Points, check.
Back to work, me.
