  •  Ah yes ... the class of '77 (0+ / 0-)

    Or was it '76 or '78? No matter. As I recall kids in the late 70s were an affable group, perhaps because such a large percentage of you were stoned. You guys liked your dope.

    I remember some of my older teaching colleagues at the time, members of the class of ’57, despairing that you would ever amount to anything.

    But then what could one expect from the class of '57, the lost generation, the beat generation, the original rock and roll generation. My parents, members of the class of '37, thought they were spoiled.

    You remember the class of '37 ... the greatest generation. They never tired of retailing the youngsters about how they suffered. Of course if you talked to my grandparents, the class of '17 .... Never mind. It's all anecdotal anyway.

    Me? The class of '65. The best and the brightest. Highest SAT scores ever. Committed. Involved.  Creative. Changing the world! At least that's the way I remember it.
