Thanks again, David.
I think this kind of information is a carrier of a currently fragile notion
for many: Someone somewhere acts as if there is a future that can be worked
I wonder what contact there is with community colleges and state colleges in
LA and MS.

MIT should consider letting students from Xaxier, Tulane and other schools
in for a term while New Orleans is underwater.

Other schools including Penn and Georgia State are making such offers.

At the University of Pennsylvania, my sister said qualified
Philadelphia-area students enrolled in universities at the hurricane
stricken areas have the opportunity to take fall semester classes at Penn.
Faculty will also be offered a paid leave to volunteer.

Penn's leadership in extending admission to displaced students, whose
tuition will go towards rebuilding their New Orleans universities, is a
paragon to follow.
