Today—January 20, 2017—I have something cheerful, something that I’m celebrating. It’s Lily’s fourth birthday. Happy birthday Lily!
As part of her birthday festivities, and despite her packed schedule, Lily has graciously agreed to field a few questions from readers of this blog. You can ask about her parents, favorite toys, recent trip to Disney World, etc. Just FYI: to the best of my knowledge, Lily doesn’t have any special insight about computational complexity, although she can write the letters ‘N’ and ‘P’ and find them on the keyboard. Nor has she demonstrated much interest in politics, though she’s aware that many people are upset because a very bad man just became the president. Anyway, if you ask questions that are appropriate for a real 4-year-old girl, rather than a blog humor construct, there’s a good chance I’ll let them through moderation and pass them on to her!
Meanwhile, here’s a photo I took of UT Austin students protesting Trump’s inauguration beneath the iconic UT tower.
