We had a notable awards luncheon. One of the lunch speakers talked while we ate and showed slides that compared the simplicity and elegance of the Japanese to the opulence of the Russians and Arabs. The speaker gave Trump a shout-out in his presentation as acting like a clod with the Japanese Emperor. He also talked about his science.
Note to self and my other colleagues: never agree to be the lunch speaker unless you’ve got a really dynamic act to hold the crowd.
