I received some very happy news the other day from my great friend Bill Wixon. As I've discussed before, he started out as my student but then became much more. A few months ago he returned from years working in Ireland. While there he met, and fell in love with, Rebeca Avila Luis, a very lovely Spanish woman (although we also have to wonder about her eyesight and powers of perception). Anyway, he sent me a text announcing that they'd eloped, which is such extraordinary news. They'll have to tackle the whole visa process, which I know from personal experience to be expensive, maddening and time-consuming, but I'm betting on them. I couldn't be happier for him. For her, of course, I have tremendous pity . . .
