Jasper Ridge Grasses: African Americans at a Stanford pre-Journalism conference, Democracy Now, Stanford is a Flower

Saw more African Americans at a Stanford pre-Journalism conference talk yesterday evening by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now than I have at many academic talks in decades. Amy seems to be giving a voice to progressive media that's effective, and means something to people who want social change.



Stanford is a flower and a piece of architectural music, thanks to Olmsted :)


Glad to see I'm not the only Freddy fan! @Scott: If Stanford is a piece of music, Central Park is a symphony - I'm envious!!


So is Stanford Bach cello suites? Hmmmm ? It's not Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique ... A Mozartian design with Spanish song? ... It's neither a Grateful Dead jam, nor a raga played by Ravi Shankar ... What form of music is Stanford? :)
