Friends in High Places

Raphael Bostic, one of my favorite colleagues at USC, was confirmed yesterday as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Raphael is one of the reasons why I always laugh at the evil/petty/egotistical professor characters that inevitably show up on tv. Raphael is the whole package: he’s brilliant, hard-working, funny, and generous. I hope they appreciate him at HUD because we miss him around these parts.
