    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.

Week Two Report

Two weeks of classes are done,  Thirteen to go; but, who’s counting.  Both my classes are off to very good starts and I’m not saying that to be polite.  Principles of Macroeconomics has 47 students, my largest section ever.  But, it has a good distribution of first year to senior students and thirteen international students.  Nothing against first year students, but a junior or senior worried about getting a job is a much more interested and motivated macroeconomics student than a first year student.

I am also directing a play this fall.  It’s off to a less auspicious start and we open four weeks from yesterday.  But, I have some veteran actors in the cast and I know they will pull it off.  Shows always come together.  If you ever saw the Best Picture of the Year from about 10-15 years ago, Shakespeare in Love, you might remember the Geoffrey Rush character repeatedly saying “It’s a mystery”.  Theater people got special enjoyment from that line.  No matter how many obstacles there are, the show always seems to come together. 

This weekend will be work oriented.  Saturday morning is team building among our full time and part time faculty.  The afternoon and evening has the alumni baseball game and team banquet.  I always present an award at that.  Sunday has a evening rehearsal.

The big news is that my son’s latest movie, You’re Next, had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last Saturday and received over the top, rave reviews.  Now, distributors (hopefully) will get in a bidding war for the rights to put it in theaters around the country and my son can get out of debt and buy a reliable new car.  Google “You’re Next Movie Review” so I can show off my son’s success!

Until next time.
