One picture is worth a thousand words

Update, Sunday, April 6, 2008:
In the interest of preserving what little is left of my son's anonymity and mine, I have deleted the photo from this post, so that it is no longer visible to anyone walking past my computer, and uploaded it to Flickr. See the newly-minted Family Physicist here.

Bachelor of Science, High Honors, Physics, with a minor in Japanese, Rochester Institute of Technology, May 25, 2007.

Pair of parents (who will, quite clearly, never win a Pulitzer for photography) very proud and pleased as punch. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The gold-colored double "rope" is indicative of the Son-ster's status as a "High Honors" recipient, which we assume to be the English-language equivalent of Magna Cum Laude. The white stole with the large red dot, patterned after the Japanese flag, symbolizes The Family Physicist's successful completion of foreign studies in Japan.

Oh, swift--I couldn't see your Japanese characters before because they wouldn't show up on my office computer. Neat!

I assume that's mazal tov in Japanese. :) Thanks!
