Our son Tom is a senior at Berkeley High, and as documented in these pages last fall (from Yreka and Eugene), decided the place he’d really like to go to college is the University of Oregon (home of the Ducks). He’s been pretty low key about it, but last Saturday, he came out of his room and said, “I’m going to Oregon.” He had been checking the U of O Web site and just seen that he’d been admitted (as a “pre-journalism” student).

Well done, I say. And all of a sudden, his departure for the next big chapter in his life is a lot — a lot — more tangible.
