Today’s blog preempted by a flight home

With any luck, we’re on a United flight this morning from San Francisco to Honolulu.

The past two days were spent at a hotel in the Berkeley Marina, where the Western Society of Criminology was holding its annual conference.

This year was special, as they presented Meda with the first Meda Chesney-Lind Award, a new award which will carry her name. It is for significant contributions on the intersection of women and crime.

Aha! Forget the Oscars…make way for the Medas!

A number of her current and former graduate students were able to attend, so Meda got lots of support. When I get home, I’ll post the video of the presentation and Meda’s brief comments.

Here’s the view at dawn when we arrived in Berkeley a couple of days ago. The fishing pier is maintained as part of a state park.

We’re looking forward to freeing Duke and Silverman from the vet’s, where they have been boarding, and then getting home to see all the rest of the feline family.
