dinosaursProfessor Peter DeMenocal, Frontiers lecture, Monday morning, in response to a student asking why dinosaurs survived in warmer temperatures but humans can’t:

“That’s our world, like it or not. We’re not dinosaurs.”

Spanish professor in Milbank, Monday afternoon:

“Spanish is spoken in 19 countries… i mean, depending on whether there’s a revolution, right?”
