The Intersection

I can’t believe the names that have rolled in over the holidays, including a very large number of university presidents:

Warren Baker, President, California Polytechnic State University

Eugene Butcher, Professor of Pathology, Stanford University School of Medicine; Crafoord Prize in Polyarthritis, 2004

Jared Cohon, President, Carnegie Mellon University

Dianne Harrison, President, California State University, Monterey Bay

John Hennessy, President, Stanford University

Albert Karnig, President, California State University, San Bernardino

Don Kassing, President, San Jose State University

Eugene H. Levy, Provost and Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Rice University; former NASA Advisory Council; NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal recipient

Martin Manley, Chairman and CEO, Alibris, Inc; former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Labor

Philip Pizzo, Dean, Stanford University School Of Medicine

Rollin Richmond, President, Humboldt State University

Maxine Singer, President Emerita, Carnegie Institution of Washington; 1992 National Medal of Science; 2007 Public Welfare Medal, Nat’l Academy of Sciences

Walter Slocombe, Former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy (1994-2001), Senior Advisor for National Security and Defense, Coalition Provisional Authority for Iraq (2003)

Bruce Stillman, President, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Don’t you think it’s getting to the point that, in the new year, the campaigns are going to have to take this idea seriously?

    Have you seen the NYTimes (scroll down) coverage?

    My alma mater (Carnegie Mellon) is on board.

    Lots of heavy hitters. It looks like you might beat the skeptics on this one.
