Youíve studied all over the country: Notre Dame, the University of Puget Sound, and Eastern New Mexico University. Is there a story there?
A: Iím a native New Mexican. My father was in the second world war, and when he came back, he had just started practicing law when he became ill with multiple sclerosis. There was a hospital in Washington where my grandmother took him for care. So when I was looking at schools, we had just happened to be going to Tacoma to visit a couple of the nuns who had taken care of him 25 years before. I looked at that school and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest.
