We stand behind our taste in books - The
Magazine staff is pictured to the left, illustrating the
principle You are what you read. I'm behind Frosty the Snowman.
When we got the idea for this column, as part of an issue in which

each editor would write a bit about his or her favorite books.
As the oldest reader in the group, I got the most space.
Making the mind -- and the University -- ready -
"All things are ready if our minds be so." Thus says
the young king in Henry V as he and his men prepare to enter the
fury and chaos of battle. At a moment of millennial change, these
words tell us much about how the University community will navigate
that change. Indeed, these words might be thought to capture what
our University is all about. [
