For those have not been following Jim West’s blogging from the CBA annual meeting, I have been razzing him a bit in the comments, telling him something to the effect that if he were to meet my dissertation advisor, Bill Bellinger of Baylor, at the meeting, it would be almost like meeting me (since I know Jim is dying to meet me!). Well, turns out he and Dr. Bellinger ended up being on the same plane and chatted briefly. And now, Jim has risen to the challenge. Here, courtesy of JW, is a picture of the man . . . . with Jim West.
Jim, congrats. You’ve arrived!
(BTW, I am meeting with Dr. Bellinger next week; I am looking forward to getting the skinny on this from him).
