I spent some of Saturday on John Derbyshire’s island, at Chaminade High School in Mineola (I gave a talk). Good people and nice, smart, disciplined young men (all boys’ Catholic high school). And–of sidebar interest to loyal Corner fans–the house pet (a dog and not a cat, appropriately) is named Jonah. I was disappointed the principal’s name was not Cosmo, but Brother Joe seems terrific nonetheless.
The trip was a treat.
