Here's today's Michigan State University High 5 - a morning hello and the fastest way to get you up to speed with what's happening at MSU.
I rarely get sick. (Well, there was that whole cardiac arrest thing a couple of years ago. Go big or go home, right?) But regular colds and flu? I've been pretty lucky to escape those - until now. I felt the scratchy throat and stuffy head come on yesterday afternoon and by evening I knew my luck had run out. Unfortunately, I knew I had work to do that wouldn't wait and, after all, it's just a cold. So here I sit at home (no need to spread my germs) alternately blowing my nose and typing away. Hey, at least it's a beautiful day and I can sit outside.

I think about Spartans on campus and all over the world working on the most challenging problems -disease, clean water, alternative energy, food security and more. I doubt any of them would let a little sniffle stop them. I think of the football game this past weekend - did our team give up after a bad play or missed opportunity? Nope. They simply put it behind them and fought on to an exciting and well-deserved win. Perseverance and tenacity is just part of the Spartan DNA.
