Ted Lieu is Awesome

OK, just wrapped up winter quarter, including my big undergraduate class on globalization, with 250 students.  The post-quarter decrease in student emails and meetings is a pleasant relief.

I hope to do some blogging again… starting with something rather off-topic.  One of my amazing friends from Stanford is in the news, in a very good way.  The Washington Post did a very nice write-up:

Ted Lieu is out-tweeting Trump, and it’s making him a political star

The article makes Ted sound like a saint… and I have to say, it is really true.  You’ll never come across a better person.  Nicer than nice.  Down to earth.  Smart.  Thoughtful.  More integrity than you can shake a stick at.  He’s like some caricature of the “good guy who went into politics to make the world a better place.”

Ted is truly mild mannered, so it is a bit of a surprise to see his brash tweets about Trump.  But, I think that says a lot about the current political environment.  Even mild mannered people (myself included) are shocked at the events of late.

I’ve never paid much attention to twitter, but this article motivated me to install the twitter app on my phone… so I can get a daily infusion of Ted’s tweets.  Thus far I have not been disappointed.  Go Ted!!!
