Our scientists and engineers have LOTS of secret lives. And sometimes they send us post cards. This one is from our beloved Jean Berko Gleason.

This is a photo of my daughter Pam and me on Pam’s farm outside of Aiken, S.C.

Pam played polo at Yale, and now plays in Aiken, where she edits and publishes a newspaper about the horse world, “The Aiken Horse” (I’m the associate editor). The Aiken Horse team won the final Sunday polo match of the year on November 14 at historic Whitney Field in Aiken.

Eat your heart out, Ralph Lauren.

Pam is a fierce competitor on the field, while I, like Ralph Lauren, prefer the more sartorial aspects of the sport.
