Editor's Note: Summer Postcards, Round 2

This week, we return with another set of postcards, but of a slightly less exotic sort. Five out of the six postcards come from editors spending the summer within the United States, and our only international writer is a mere hundred miles north of the border. We hope, however, that these pieces make your reconsider familiar places.

We also received two poignant pieces in memory of Paul F. Gilligan ’05, which you can read on the opposite page. Although we planed on printing only postcards this summer, we have decided to publish these two pieces because of the exceptional tragedy of the past week. We hope they are a fitting tribute to a person who was loved by so many.
