Where I've Been

For the past few days I've been at a conference in honor of my friend Peter Gourevitch, a political scientist at UCSD. Here's the view from the conference room: a hang glider floats over the Pacific. French university reformers take note. There is a nude beach below, which was once the subject of a study by French sociologist Edgar Morin, who was fascinated by the mores of researchers at the nearby Salk Institute, designed by Louis Kahn.
