I have to say he was a great teacher. My class was the first of his, and I believe PSU wants him to come back next spring for INS412.

I recognize the name. Used to head up social security or something like that. Also know he was in Arnie's first class. Shapiro used to talk him up big time. Boasting like a proud papa.
