Today Doug, an English department colleague, drama director, mentor, and incredibly witty, warm, wonderful person died from injuries sustained in a horrific car/pedestrian accident about a week ago.   Everyone in our department has been stunned since the accident.  Students in Doug’s classes are having great difficulty accepting this reality.  The entire school, as well as so many former students, friends, family, colleagues around the world, are in mourning. It’s difficult to think about technology innovations  and applications today.
