Congratulations to Lorenzo Sewanan, a Trinity College graduate now at Yale School of Medicine, for winning a poetry contest for medical students. Mr. Sewanan, a native of Surinam whose first language was Dutch, is pursuing an M.D. and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, according to the New Yorker Magazine.
And of course, kudos to Nobel Prize winner James E. Rothman, professor of biomedical sciences at Yale, and thank you for this further proof that Connecticut is on the cutting edge of medicine.
Speaking of Yale, a win-win for the state and the New Haven Open if the Capital Region Development Authority buys the rights to the tennis tournament. That would keep the tournament from leaving for North Carolina. The drawback: More applicants for state rescue.
Thumbs down on the furloughs of Veteran Administration workers. It would be immoral to leave vets without disability benefits.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
