We have more to say about Indiana as a whole, but we'll see if we can get there....
The campus was totally empty, which was unappreciated. They really should have brought some people in for us. We did get a chance to see the football stadium, touchdown Jesus, “Number 1 Moses,” and the Golden Dome. The Golden Dome seemed to be one of the most chilled out religious structures I have ever seen. First of all, Jesus atop the dome seems to be giving a “low five.” Secondly, there is a beach volleyball court right next to it. I’d like to see that at the kotel. Actually, I just remembered what the kotel ladies look like. Let’s keep them shrouded in black…
Harold went in to the touchdown Jesus building, supposedly to pee. I am going to assume that is a euphemism for baptism.
One other note- the golden furred squirrels in Indiana are the equivalent of pigeons in New York. This squirrel crawled right up to Av without fear. Only after Abie explained that on his many travails he had met one of his kind called Ko-Jo did the squirrel let us go. Consider this fulfilling our promise to tell stories of his compassion.
The campus is gorgeous. It’s sprawling with huge lawns, lined by trees, and interspersed with murals and monuments. It must be ridiculously beautiful in the spring and fall. There is also a lot of Latin. If only I had gone to the School of Rock to learn it.
College is amazing. You know… hypothetically.
Still to come: A drive in to Americana and a Happy 50th Birthday to Harold.... Stay Tuned
