Let these triumphant victims be brought to the place where Christ is the
victim. But He
St. Ambrose of Milan
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's true. I really had to dig a bit to find the theme for today's Newsletter, which honors two second century Christian martyrs, the patron saints of Milan and of haymakers, and whose names are invoked for the discovery of thieves.

150 YEARS AGO TODAY:
|June 19, 1865 - Over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, slaves in Galveston, Texas, United States, were finally informed of their freedom. The anniversary is still officially celebrated in Texas and 41 other contiguous states as Juneteenth.|
THIS DAY IN WWII:
June 19, 1942 - British Prime Minister Winston Churchill
arrived in Washington, DC, to discuss the invasion of North Africa with U.S.
THIS DAY IN 1965:
|Saturday, June 19, 1965 - Nguyễn Cao Kỳ became Prime Minister of South Vietnam at the head of a military junta; General Nguyễn Văn Thiệu became the figurehead chief of state.|
If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't
want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still
suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your
predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the
obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of
pretending will alter that reality.

Thanks so much, Susan!
Hochman ('60) of VA -
I have not heard
anything from you in a long while. I certainly miss your TYPHOON
information and news! I hope all is well! You are certainly
appreciated for all you do!
Thank you so much, Steve! As you've noticed, I've not issued any announcements since about May Day (there's probably a message right there).
Y'all have heard me whining about those odious announcements since I first began sending them out over a decade ago. They're time-consuming, tedious and frustrating, but it all would have been worth it had they actually reached everyone. As it happens, though, neither you nor Jerry ('65) and Judy Phillips ('66) Allen of VA - and presumably at least 182 other people - can get the blithering links to work!
I'm not sure whether I'm being practical or just plain bratty, but I've saved myself a great deal of frustration over the last seven weeks!
I'll keep trying to resolve the problem, though so far my attempts have led merely to more complications.
Meanwhile, "come and git 'em":
