Off Topic: July Starts with a Bang (even without firecrackers)

Several pieces of personal news: yesterday, the State of Tennessee confered tenure on me at Austin Peay; unfortunately, that good news was soon tempered as Bill Sharp, my wife's father, took ill with pneumonia yesterday and died this morning. Bill was a self-educated man who successfully helped support and raise four children and who enjoyed a variety of interests, such as paper money and coins, antique postcards, travel and contract bridge. He will be missed by friends and family.
