Goodbye Salem, hello Ft. Wayne.
For those of you who combine Final IV attendance with a round or two of golf, may I recommend a great course near Ft. Wayne? It's called Autumn Ridge and is just north of FW on I-69. Lovely course. I highly recommend it.
Let's hope during those four years now set for FW that we have a CCIW Final Four entrant each and every year.
Just back from Singapore and Jakarta -- recruiting for IWU -- found lots of good opera singers but no Indonesia Yao Ming as yet. Singapore is just too smart to send any of their best kids to the US and IWU now . . . and most folks said they didn't want to go through the hassle of a US visa and "extreme vetting" now anyway. So many treated so rudely and crudely. They'd rather stay home and watch badminton and ping pong. And with all the guns and shootings in America, most Asian parents are very worried about sending their kids to those mean streets anyway! Sure, I know University of Chicago is in a great neighborhood. I guess I'll have to try Taiwan and Japan next month. Jeremy Lin came from Taiwan, right?
Warm greetings to all the CCIW chatsters from the Far Side. It's getting really hot and humid in HK now and my brain is just getting too fried, so I'm not thinking straight. Best get back to Bloomington soon, and "cool off."
