I have several good reasons to wear my tie featuring "The Scream" by Edvard Munch today! It is the opening day for classes at Eastern Kentucky University, which can be frightening for both students and teachers. We are also recovering from a frightful "failed upgrade" for our Blackboard system. But the best reason is that today is the twelfth anniversary of the day when "The Scream" was stolen at gunpoint from its museum in Oslo, Norway. (It was recovered in good condition two years later.) Nate David is just plain happy to be with his "Papa Seeds," no matter what tie I'm wearing.
