Likely letter from Columbia
Accepted by University of Chicago (let the flame war recommence)

Re: New York 2013

Luo, you bring up excellent points. But I just think that representation should be appropriate for the level of skill and competition found in each state. By no means should any state be barred from competing, but I think that the system of choosing how many teams go to Nationals is inadequate. I ac...

Re: New York 2013

I'm actually trying to work this through, because I'll admit that the idea has a lot of appeal to me because it would virtually guarantee WM a spot at Nationals every year. But if such a system were to be implemented, it would need to be fair, not designed to the advantage of just a few teams. If we...

Re: New York 2013

Results aren't up yet, but Ward Melville took 1st place at the Eastern Long Island regional with 37 points. Second and third were Hills East and Port Jeff. I'm not sure about 4th and 6th, but Brentwood got 5th. Congratulations to everyone going to states! See you in two weeks.

Re: Rocks & Minerals B/C

Hi! Remember me? I was just looking through the wiki and I saw that it has Opal and Quartz as Oxides. However, the Simon and Schuster guide, the Internet (i.e. Wikipedia), and my memory say that they are actually Silicates. I changed it on the wiki, but I figured I'd ask if it was a mistake or if th...

Hello again. I just wanted to let you know that I am still lurking here. In other news, I love the Christmas theme. It's beautiful. Is this new layout going to be permanent?

Re: Favorite Book

I just read The Great Gatsby, and I have to say that it ranks as one of my favorite books. I can't wait to see how they butchered it for the movie.
