Thank you for the
wonderful newsletters. I hope they continue for many years to come.
I want to add a little something to the stories of Newport News High School alums.
Not long after
marrying, my husband started working in Washington, D.C. at everyone's
favorite agency, the IRS.
There were a number of fellas from that agency, the Justice Department and the Interstate Commerce Commission
right across the street, who played basketball together everyday at lunch on the Justice Department roof
(thanks to Bobby Kennedy's need to exercise on a regular basis).
I used to hear regularly about this brilliant guy who worked at the Justice Department,
but never really heard a name or got to meet him socially.
Years later, Ken
(my hubby) mentioned he was at a legal function and someone came over to him
and said hello.
It was the fella from Justice who was then working for Exxon in Dallas.
So Ken invited him and his wife to have dinner with us several days later and to the house first for wine and cheese.
When the doorbell
rang and the couple came into the house, I knew they looked familiar,
but I wasn't really ready to try to place why I knew them.
The wife looked at me a moment, asked me where I went to high school,
and promptly announced she was Carol Vogel ('63)!
What a delight. We laughed, cried and chattered for the rest of the evening
going through old Anchors I had recently located and reliving so many great occasions.
She is married to Darden Daniel ('63) (the brilliant lawyer from the Department of Justice).
They have two children, and live about 8 miles west of us in Texas.
We see them several times a year. It is indeed a small world!
Bobbie (Barbara Smith) Horwitz ('65) of TX -
WOW - what a great story! Thanks, Bobbie!
Darkness and Light
A rabbi asked his students, "When is it at dawn that one can tell the light from the darkness?"
One student replied, "When I can tell a goat from a
"No," answered the rabbi.
Another said, "When I can tell a palm tree from a fig."
"No," answered the rabbi again.
"Well, then what is the answer?" his students pressed him.
"Only when you look into the face of every man and every
woman and see your brother and your sister," said the rabbi.
"Only then have you seen the light. All else is still darkness."
