Wow, Stanford's fundraising muscle is unequaled. All this philanthropy is so heartening. I wish tiny non-profits like the Media Center where I work had a little more flexing ability to attract donors. We're working on it! We help people plug in to skills, issues and a social network of community video creators. I love it as much as I love all that Stanford does for our community. We're important too! But it's definitely "Go Cardinal!"

Wow. I had not yet seen the artist renderings. Cantilever designs in earthquake country have made me nervous since that Sylmar hospital collapse in '71. But I suppose the architects know what they are doing...
