David and his wife Marsha completed a Singapore to Hong Kong cruise in early January, and had dinner with Rick and his wife Annie at a restaurant on Hong Kong island. David is retired from many years of teaching at Madison Area Technical College, in addition to collaborating on several Chemical Education projects with the department. Rick was vice-president of research and now continues as professor of chemistry at Hong Kong Baptist University. He sent several of his students to Madison for their graduate degrees over the years. The meal and the conversations were wonderful. The Shaws left Hong Kong a few days after the dinner, just as the authorities were starting to realize that the virus coming out of Wuhan did have human-to-human transmission.
