Weekend Round-up

Sorry to have been MIA since Thursday, but board duty called... Unbelievably, it was warmer in the Northwest corner of CT (read: Berkshire Mountains) than it has been here in NYC of late. I don't know what that means in terms of climate change, but I'm betting it's not good.

In any case, here are the stories that had my heart aflutter over the weekend:

HARVARD'S LADY LEADER: After 371 years, Harvard has finally seen the light and appointed its first female President in the person of Drew Gilpin Faust.

THE (IN)HUMANITY OF LETHAL INJECTION: Read this article and then keep trying to argue in favor of capital punishment. I ain't buying it--and neither are an increasing number of judges.

MARK CUBAN--VOICE OF REASON?: His argument may be a little simplistic, but it's nice to see somebody in the business trying to convince players it might actually be to their advantage to come out.

That's it for the moment... More updates to come.
