People on the old side here might remember a Today Show visit to UMich many years ago. So long ago that Jane Pauley was the co-anchor (/host) with Bryant Gumbel. Anyway, the show also featured Brown.

It appeared to me at the time that they were painting UMich as more of a generic "State U" than a Public Ivy. Our profiled first-year student was a hick from rural / semi-rural Michigan and Brown's was (of course) a well-spoken Philly Main Line specimen.

I was in the MMB, which was up REAL early (esp. for college students) to be in uniform on the steps of the Grad and performing occasionally.  Willard Scott had a bunch of Fijis in togas or something helping with a weather segment.  And they contrasted UM's band with Brown's, which is much more like Stanford's scatter band.

Off topic - our B1G/ACC opponent #6 NC State is currently losing to unranked OK St by 15 with 8 mins to play. ESPN2

Edit- 20 pt lead for OK St with 3 mins left. Damn. Would have been nice to have them undefeated when we play them.

This infant research piece is very intriguiing. Personally, I believe the early results point towards the belief that humans have a genetic basis for a basic sense of morality (taking out any early conditioning the infants experience).
