Old Digs…

I’m waiting for a meeting in my all time favorite part of the NIH campus in Bethesda: the slightly dive-like Clinical Center basement cafeteria (now food court).  It was the locus of many an intense conversation during my postdoctoral years here. In those days the food was foul, the cigarette smoke pungent, but the science talk was great!  Well the smoke is gone, but all the rest is  still here.  Here’s hoping that the NIH sees fit to preserve the black socks and sandals atmosphere long into the future.
