Personal Stuff

View from our back yard Our house (see pic bottom right).
My wife, Nancy Hirschmann, is now a tenured Full Professor in the Dept. of Political Science at Penn. Her book, The Subject of Liberty has been awarded the 2004 Victoria Schuck prize for the best book published on women and politics.

We adopted two kittens, Xena and Zoe, from the Pennsylvania SPCA. (1997) After 14 years, Zoe is gone (May 2011) but Xena is still going strong.
