Very soon, I'm off to see these bffs of mine graduate. They're both graduating as Drs (in Philosophy and Theology) at Fordham. Anne & I spent many years together in the trenches working on our doctorates -- studying for the comps, editing each others' papers, talking through philosophical arguments, and brainstorming new ways to present material in our teaching. I couldn't have done what I did without her and I know first hand what a passionate scholar and teacher she is. Congrats darlin!
p.s. I'm proud of Ashley too, but he's getting his doctorate in Theology, and we all know that Theology is a Philosophy-wannabe, so I can't take him too seriously.
