Pride and Prejudice

Boston area had one foot or more wet snow last night. Thus almost everything is closed or grind to a halt today. However, Harvard traditionally never close in her 300 years of history except once in the 70s when the whole State shut down for a week due to an unprecedented snow storm. Anyway a talk with the above title was still scheduled for this afternoon. I had plan to go. But with shoveling snow, lack of parking, and my old body of more than 85 year, I decided not to venture out. Here is my one sentence summary of what this talk is all about based on the announcement of the talk (The title is of course a play on this famous novel of the Bronte sisters).

Pride is patriotism while Prejudice is nationalism (America first as Trump would say).

We salute the first but not the second. 

Here are some photos of the snow scenes from our home window:
