My parents told me once, in polite company, one avoids discussing politics or religion. But that was back in the mid-20th century.
Today, political and religious strife lies at the heart of cable entertainment news on a 24/7 basis. It seems mandatory policy for citizen-audiences to eat, breathe, and bathe in such sensitive issues daily. So, I am just trying to do my bit. And, I hope no one is offended; or if they are, will tolerate the intrusion on their safe space. A Twitter statement from my lawyer's mother will follow.
I write today with one recollection among many about the Chapel Walkout of April 1969. In just a few short weeks, about 40 or so of our classmates who will gather for our 50th reunion. We’ve planned a “Chapel Walk-In” where we hope many more of you will share your own personal recollections of this day.
I’m not alone in being very interested in learning how others recall this event with 50 years of perspective, as well as understanding what has changed at the ’Burg because of it. We are, after all, a class of disruption and evolution, no?
