Hi Peter: This looks like a great session. Robin Hahnel made me an economist. I was a phil major at U Md college park when Robin was an instructor in economics. I took his course on Comparative systems to satisfy a distribution requirement and was blown away, and then spent my junior and senior years taking as much economics as I could. He was my mentor, advising me to come to AU for grad school. He was on my thesis committee. He is a wonderful person and fantastic economist and activist -- also a diehard Redskins fan, something I never understood, since my attitude toward sports in general is very much Veblen's -- it's a reversion to barbarism! And Dan Saros was a student of mine at Bowling Green, one of the best I have ever had, who went on to Notre Dame before the Purge and thence to head the department at Valparaiso.

Anyway, I wish I could be there! Cheers,
