Two French friends from decades back came to lunch today – he is a psychologist and has been working in two prisons in Provence for around seven years, focusing on murderers and sexual offenders. Says he enjoys it – and has been fighting for the rights to health of such prisoners.
Separately, it’s sad how thoughtful people see France becoming increasingly right-wing and intolerant under the current regime.
Then, in the evening, Elaine and I went across to Charlotte Street to have dinner with another friend, Will Rosenzweig of Physic Ventures at Roka. Wonderful evening – and the trains and Tube worked quite spectacularly well, with a maximum wait of all four connections happing within a minute or so. I took as book, Physics for Future Presidents by Richard A. Muller, but didn’t get a chance to start it.
