    You studied with HIM?  Cool as cool can be.  I treasure my copy of How To Kill A Dragon as a fundamental bardic instruction manual ;-).

      teaching at the Harvard Extension night school I ended up get both and A.A and A.B. there while working at MIT first as a technical staff person, and then later as a Research Associate even though I never finished my Ph.D. at MIT (passed the general exams and completed all the course work but was lured away to corporate consulting by astonishing consulting opportunities.

      An additional plug for the Harvard College Extension programs (night school) is that I met the MIT professor who pulled me across to MIT in a course he was teaching in systems simulation of social systems.  

      And, I managed to get my undergraduate degrees and four years of graduate studies without incurring any college debt at all.  The Extension endowment requires them to offer courses for the same cost as a "bushel of wheat," something they've stretched a bit, but still is very affordable compared to what my son (and I) are now paying for Case Western.  

      Something I didn't sufficiently
