Funny you should say that. I grew up in Bellevue (near Seattle) and lived in the city for two years after undergrad, and for a long time I've talked about how it's a good mix of being urban while still being affordable, relative to NYC (where I am now due to job issues).
Yet last time I visited Seattle, about a year and a half ago with my girlfriend, I was struck by how quiet the streets were. Where were all the people? The bustle I remembered? Instead even Capitol Hill and downtown seemed like libraries.
Then I realized that the city had only changed a little, but my baseline had re-calibrated because of living in the East Village in New York.
1A) If you get jet lag going west, you are not drinking enough water on the flight. Very low humidity at the equivalent of 5000 ft elevation equals dehydration, particularly if you have any caffeine or alcohol. Try tonic water.
1B) I know a huge fan of the Replacements, a band that was after my time, but he never mentioned those two songs. Awesome. Now I understand.
2) We do service learning in some special programs, where it appears to have a team-building effect. Anything that leads to a learning community helps any group of students, so I can see how it could have a huge effect on dev ed students.
3A) Also different in the trenches. Knew a prof who taught at an academy. A student officer took care of any discipline problems. It was quite different when he moved to a public university!
3B) Good point about being a talent scout. A chair's job is partly to find and train a good replacement.
4) Virtual high five. Smile.
