>Dear Friends of Wisdom,
>
>                                     Well, the news item about Friends of 
>Wisdom does appear in today's Times Higher Education Supplement (12 May).  
>Not on the front page, but on page 9.  I have attached a copy to this 
>email.  Above the article there is a cartoon (not reproduced in the 
>attachment).  In the UK there is a TV programme called "University 
>Challenge" presented by Jeremy Paxman.  In the cartoon, we see a group of 
>contestants sitting under a sign which says "New style university 
>challenge", and Paxman is saying "Your starter for 10 - What is the meaning 
>of life?"  It could be worse.  When Anthea Lipsett told me last night there 
>was going to be a cartoon - and that that would draw attention to the piece 
>- I emailed her the following:  "I now have a vivid picture of the cartoon 
>- professors in gowns and mortarboards prancing into the world's battle 
>zones armed with nothing more lethal than a piece of chalk, solemnly 
>lecturing the combatants about the need for peace until struck down in a 
>hail of bullets".  Fortunately, we are not depicted suffering that 
>indignity.
>
>                                      I have sent our Press Release off to 
>the education correspondents of all the serious UK newspapers I could think 
>of, to BBC news outlets, start the week and channel 4 news, as well as to 
>some magazines and journals.  And I have informed various emailing groups 
>of our existence.  I don't really expect there to be much of a response, 
>but we have at least begun to announce our existence and aspirations to the 
>world.
>
>                                      I will keep you informed of any 
>developments!
>
>                                           Best wishes,
>
