  •  I'm 14, and in last period Latin class (5+ / 0-)

    In a suburb of Boston. The news came over the school loudspeaker, and I'm sure somebody -- the teacher, one of my classmates - must have said something, but I just remember us staring at each other in mute silence. I walked home, about a mile walk, numb. My parents were Democrats and just as saddened as I was, but it wasn't my birthday, so I don't get reminded of it every year.  Just when I have to teach it.

    Happy birthday, snazzybird, and happy Thanksgiving.
