“Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I'm still running marches through the end of the month of March. "Just a little joke."
From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 03/25/09:
Liszt's Rákóczi March is a good one, too.
So it is! Thanks again, Faniel!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x38NQFk5OCc - Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody no.15 - Rákóczi March - Arcadi Volodos - Now, THAT'S awesome!

From Alex Nicol (February '49) of VA - 03/28/09:
A few men, from that
general time, many years later worked with me. Sadly, they have all passed. I
will be 77 on 3-31-2009. Been retired since Dec. 2006.
Thank you so very much, Alex! Have a super birthday!
From Ivan Anker ('67) of VA - 03/28/09 - "Christopher Shores":
Christopher Shores was a bustling area when I was growing up. I lived on 14th Street and had plenty of friends from the the ole neighborhood joining me thru my journey through high school. It was for me a the best of times. Friends and cousins to mention a few: Jeanene ('60), Bert ('60), Judy ('65), Harvey ('70) Anker. Then there were Cathy Crockin ('67), Ellen Kurzer ('67), Norman and Mitchell ('66) (now a Rabbi) Smith, Janet Forman ('68), Mark Friedman ('65), Diane Sandler ('68), Kenny Schwartz ('67), and many others.
As I approach my 60th birthday (March 31), I look back and think of all those wonderful years.
Thanks, Ivan! I know Lukie Buxton lived there. He went to private school, of course (was it Christ Church - '63??). Didn't Mike ('65) and Janet ('68) Hirschman live in Christopher Shores, too - or is that another one of my Twisted Memories?!?
I think I did not know that Mitchell Smith was a Rabbi, but I'm not surprised, either. WOW!
Have a wonderful birthday, Ivan!
From Eva Ellis Madagan (61) of FL - 03/28/09:
Please let Allen Hall (of FL) know the Class of '61 has missed him and looks forward to seeing him at the reunion. My brother Gene Ellis (of FL) just asked about him last week.....
Thanks, Eva, I forwarded your note to Allen!
From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 03/28/09 - "Something pretty cool" - AND From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 03/23/09 - "great musical video":
Hi Guys, please ck out the link below, it's something that is pretty cool :0000)
That's an understatement indeed, I'd like to take all of these people and put them together in an auditorium for an all-night jam session, they sure feel the music. Didn't look like many could put enough change together to buy much, but wow.
I think this link is so great that I want to share
it. Wish I had it on DVD.
Here’s a version of the Ben E. King classic “ ” for our times:
Thanks, Jay Sweetie (and the ever gorgeous David once again)! This superb video clip was the very inspiration for last Tuesday's Newsletter:
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 03/28/09 - "BIBLE SALES ":
