Here, indeed, are two perfectly ordinary coffee mugs - that is, mine contains coffee; Alice's is of tea - sitting on a bench on campus on a not yet sunny morning: a perfectly dull picture.  Only one so rarely does take pictures of ordinate moments that nonetheless manage to be very good ones - we snatched a quarter of an hour when we got to campus (both with admin snapping at our heels) just to sit and talk and contemplate an improbable sight on a university campus: a woman with a cloth and a spray (a white, administrator-type of woman) cleaning the rail on the top deck of the Sol Price School of Public Policy.  Someone has the energy, the resources, the - the what? the anxiety about donors, or Special Guests? - to go out and polish a balcony rail?
