08/24/13 - NNHS Newsletter - Barbara Ann
“The minute I heard my
first love story, I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet
somewhere. They're in each other all along.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Summer's winding down, but there's still time for some good ol' summer dance music!

THIS DAY IN 1963:
Saturday, August 24, 1963 - Buddhist crisis: As a result of the Xa Loi Pagoda raids, the US State Department cables the US Embassy in Saigon to encourage Army of the Republic of Vietnam generals to launch a coup against President Ngo Dinh Diem if he did not remove his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu.
NEW ON SITE:
WAY BACK THEN:
Since you posted a couple of new pages in the section known as Our Old Stomping Grounds, let me add a comment about Pittman's Grocery which was located at 26th Street and Marshall Avenue in East End.
The owner of this grocery store lived on the second floor of this brick structure. His son, Merritt Guy Pittman, was in the Class of 1957. We used to ride the Citizens Rapid Transit bus to school from the bus stop on the corner of Marshall Avenue and 28th Street. When Mr. Pittman sold the business, he provided an opportunity for his long time employee, the butcher, to purchase the business. I should be able to remember this name, but it escapes me right now. Duhhh. If you would like, I'll can call you about 0200 when I recall his name.
- Joe Madagan ('57) of FL -
Well, Joe, not even six years have passed, and we already have an answer to this mystery! The new owner's name was R.C. Satchell!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/23/13:
Job Interview Question:
You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading. This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect dream lover again.
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer.
He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend, and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the woman of my dreams."
Never forget to "Think Outside of the Box."
