"Raised a ruckus with alums, you can be sure..."
lol! There was a lawsuit filed by alums regarding frats at my alma
mater. Nice to see it is the same all over.
"Have you ever read Frederick Turner's epic poem THE NEW

No way! I had no idea. It's possible that I heard of it at some
point and avoided it because of the phrase "epic poem." I like poems to be
a short as possible. I have an unreasonable, stubborn suspicion of long
poems. I look at them the exact same way my grandmother looked at
computers. Can't quite quantify that look, but I know it when I see it ;)
But I do think I would have looked into it, had I heard of it. I
will have to read it because I *have* to see if the author pictured Mt.
Vernon any differently 300-400 years from now than it is now. Great! Thank
you for mentioning it.
Boy, I have to go create many long charts and I'm having a nostalgia
attack for more bucolic, ivory tower-ish days. Must. Overcome. gasp pant.
No. More. Student. Loans! Ah, I feel better now.
