    Tony's Bio:
    A bio is always hard to write at my age (think grandfather). I have taught economics for 31 years, the last 21 at CSS. For four of those years I was the school's Athletic Director adding track and field and Nordic skiing, and laying ground work for football and women's hockey. I am married with two grown children. My daughter is working on her PhD in Chemistry as the Univ. of Chicago and she is the mother of my grandson, which is pretty cool. My son is a screen writer in LA. Eight of his scripts have been produced. He is also a licensed private investigator, which is odd.

Summer’s Over

For college professors, July 4th marks the halfway point in the summer vacation. But, unofficially, August 1 is when the fall semester starts.  From here on, there are more meetings.  We have to think about and write our new syllabi.  People who had summer projects, like Masters students writing their thesis, are trying to get them done.  So, here I am working in my sweltering office.

First, I liked the Harry Potter movie.  Next I have to see “Aliens vs. Cowboys”.  It has gotten bad reviews but, come on, you have to see a movie called “Aliens vs. Cowboys”.

Second, it was very good that Congress passed an increase in our debt ceiling since it avoided our country’s first debt default.  We are the only developed country that has never defaulted and that distinction helps us get foreigners to finance our over-consumption.  But, Congress didn’t do anything significant to address the problem that is undermining our future: our over-consumption.

Third, next week I am off to Chicago to see our 10 month old grandson (and his parents).  When we come back, preparation for the new year really gets going.
