In Response to: In Short

“Ballad for Trayvon Martin” by Anthony Branker ’80 (posted at PAW Online Feb. 5) is just lovely. An applicant I interviewed recently surprised me by saying he wanted to come to Princeton because he loved jazz. (They more often talk about science or world affairs.) But he had looked into jazz at Princeton and knew better than I did — as this piece shows.
