No visits Thursday, though we did drive through Ithaca to look at both Cornell (too big) and Ithaca College (too ugly) because why not add more variables to mesh together into the mush?
We're in Meadville Pennsylvania to visit Allegheny College this morning. We drove through both town and campus last night.

off into the brush without a sound.
A song (and past theme song of some month), listened to Thursday afternoon on the gorgeous - simply gorgeous - drive on Interstate 86 between Corning and Jamestown:
