Short statement that describes what it means to be a Distinguished Professor of Humanics:

The summer following my Humanics lecture I received the following letter from President Falcone: "I have just finished going through some material that I saved for the summer. Among the reports, articles and papers I had kept was the text of your Humanics Lecture. I read it again
after several months' hiatus, and wanted to let you know that I enjoyed it very much. You have not only personalize the Humanics philosophy, but you have described it for future generations in a way that will have great meaning. Thanks again for a job well done "
