Penn State Meteorologists Featured in NYT Article

Even though this is a blog (so hip), we’re all pretty much newspaper junkies. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a rise any time I saw someone or something I know mentioned in the redoubtable gray lady.

Penn State meteorologists and their reactions to yesterday’s unexpectedly warm conditions were featured in a New York Times article that will be published today.

Jay Searles, a meteorologist at Penn State University, took the time-honored route of blaming the computer.

“Every single model had cold air that’s over Pennsylvania, upstate New York and Canada,” he said. “You’re not supposed to have as much sun, either. You were supposed to have more cloud cover.”

Oh well. You can’t always win. At least we beat Michigan State.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
