Slim is still in Berkeley. Says he got into a contretemps with a young man who styles himself after Che Guevara, on the validity of a sit-in to prevent the destruction of a grove of mediocre oak trees. And by contretemps, I mean that the guy said, "I respect where you're coming from, but I disagree."
Slim's sister told him, "I'm really sorry you missed my friend's thesis. " (The friend was a double-major in "Animal Communication" and dance.) "There was tumbling and backflips and everybody cried."
