What's the graduate alma mater?

Andy (AKA: The Yangban)


My grad school was The George Washington University. Like most people, I feel more emotional attachment to my undergrad school.

I got on the Yonsei OB team because they were short of players.


OT, but anyhow:

Thought you might like to know that your blog has been quoted on Swedish (!) television, in a story on the traditions of South Korean rioting.

The story can be viewed online (until next week) in the current affairs show Studio 24.

When on the Studio 24 site, click on the link "se senaste programmet", and then on the link "Studio 24 tisdag" (only Real Player). Fast forward 10 minutes and 15 seconds.

The quote from your blog regards your view on the ritualistic quality of South Korean rioting: "There is nothing spontaneous about a Korean riot" etcetera.


Being the producer of Studio 24 I thought I´d tell you all this as a way of saying thanks. Thanks!

(Blogs DO change the way we communicate!)

I wonder why that is...more undergrad attachment..i mean you still LIVE at the grad school, right?
