Ice Bucket Challenge, California-Style


Harold Pollack has made the ice bucket challenge to me here at RBC. Another friend, Lois Benishek, did the same on Facebook. Given California’s drought, I am taking the financial way out. In any event, I would rather donate than be doused, because Lois and I were both mentored by a wonderful Michigan State University professor named Bertram Stöffelmayr who lost his life to ALS.
