I was not on the list -- again. But this woman on the MacArthur grant list must be affiliated with Penn State?:

_ Beth Shapiro, 33, University Park, Pa. Evolutionary biologist whose research focuses on tracing the population history of recently extinct or threatened species.

Very engaging lecture by Beth Shapiro on Fora TV on "How to Make a Dodo."  It would be fun to have her for a class.

sort've off topic... anybody see Charlie Kauffman's "Synecdoche, New York" ?  It's about Philip Seymour Hoffman's character getting the Macarthur Genius Grant and from there I don't really know what...  ???  Well, I have my own interpretations, but wow - it's quite the thinker. 

Anybody delve into that one yet?  I enjoyed it - but it was a real struggle to put together.
They’re probably better than Stony Brook.
