Today I slipped on the ice and fell off my bike in front of one of my Harvard "colleagues." He walked right on by without concern, without glimmer of human decency. I got back on my bike with a bruised knee and hurt feelings.
What are we learning in this respected institute of "higher" learning, if at base we care nothing for civility, if an expression of genuine concern is beyond us? I think Harvard needs to raise its standards in the congeniality department...People around here are lacking some very basic and essential social skills.
