After seven glorious weeks in San Diego, my wife and I are hitting the road today with our dog for the 2,200-mile drive back to Cincinnati (what a way to spend my birthday!). This was my ninth summer teaching at the University of San Diego School of Law, and I am grateful to Dean Stephen Ferruolo and the kind folks at USD for having me back again. My 82 Tax I students were a joy, as they worked diligently in teams to answer 300 clicker questions over the 21 class sessions. It gets harder and harder each year to leave "America's Finest City" and our many friends there. We especially enjoyed breaking bread several times with USD's great tax faculty -- Jordan Barry, Karen Burke, Mark Hoose, and Grayson McCouch. We are looking forward to getting back to the Queen City (and the first place Cincinnati Reds).
