    Huzza for Professor Ferzan.

    From my time as a student at Rutgers, I recall her as an excellent teacher and a blossoming star. She has it all, brains, charm, and beauty. Too bad she’s married (and, as if to make one die from jealousy, to an accomplished, handsome and outstanding AUSA in the DNJ)!
