Today Carl Bessai came to Regina. Our department brought him in as a guest to talk with students. He did a lively lecture this evening. It was very successful. Carl asked me what he should talk about and I only told him he should give them hope. He told them to move to L.A. Ummmm, I don't think that was really the plan, but actually I think that they were quite inspired by the talk and all the advice. The best gage is always in the number of students who linger afterward to get some extra chatting in; half the class were there for an extra half hour.
