Honorary Degree at Stony Brook <intersect> new PHD named James because of your song
My wife (and I) are fans. When we were considering names for our first born, we listened to your song "James" - hence his name. He finished his PHD at Stony Brook just last month. (in simple terms - his work is computer programmed protein folding - a big improvement over prior methods). While his sister Samantha is attending the graduation for her BS, and his mother is attending the graduation for her Masters, he is not attending for his PHD. While I wish you might mention his naming in your speech, it seems he won't be there to hear it. If you made a request for his attending, I suspect he couldn't turn it down. If you are interested send me an e-mail to [email protected] Otherwise still good to hear you going strong.
