As tradition dictates, as well as going to meetings and working and that kind of thing, Bill's also going to a special Coffee Talk in Ithaca to visit with alums and eat imported Hobnobs. We in London don't begrudge Bill "extramural" Coffee Talks, but I'm just saying, it's not going unnoticed.
Here's the reaction I got when I told the current ICLC students that Bill wouldn't be having Coffee Talk here this week:
|Dismay? Shock? Horror? Fear? All of the above.|
|Sara and Mandy were close to tears. They held it together in the end, though. ICLC students are made of tough stuff.|
|"What? Bill's not at Coffee Talk? Then I won't go either."|
