WESTWOOD—Geology professor Dan Boggs remarked in his introductory geology lecture this past Friday that he loves a good rock, according to students in his class. “I just love me a good rock,” said Professor Boggs, beaming as he conjured up images of igneous discharge with an enthusiasm to which his students could not relate. “That feeling you get holding up a dense chunk of granite with glimmering feldspar, formed so imperfectly yet beautifully in a way only the Earth could produce — there’s just nothing like it.” Boggs could not be reached for comment at press time, as he had embarked on a mission to the Swiss Alps to find “the perfect rock.”
