Ernie Harwell Dies

"The Sun is shinin, the stands are fillin and it's a fine afternoon for baseball....."

Longtime Detroit Tigers baseball announcer Ernie Harwell died yesterday at the age of 92. I grew up in Michigan listening to Ernie and the Tigers. Ernie had an inimitable style of describing the action and was loved by all Tiger fans. Ernie, along with UM football announcer Bob Ufer always bring back fond memories of my childhood. You will be missed Ernie.

Some Nice News

Today I received word that I had been elected as a Fellow of the Geological Society of America. It's not a huge deal, but it's nice to be recognized as a contributor to my field of science.
