I apologize to my readers for the long silence. I've been passing
through Spring Crunch, which every year makes March and April very
crowded, as we graduate one group of students and admit another. In the
midst of lectures, seminars, papers, exams, letters, grants, and
meetings, there's little time left for private enterprise.
In this interval, much has happened. On the plus side, Illinois went to
the Final Two, the Lincoln museum and library opened, Jim Hollis
published a new book, and Gourmet Magazine declared Cozy Dog one of
America's Ten Greatest Drive-Ins.
On the down side, both Bill Ice and Pat Dowling underwent major
surgeries, Suzanne Lee Boyd lost her husband, Ray, and Janet Bailey
Kerner lost her mother, aged 92.
I'll have more to say soon about some of these items. To everyone,
thanks for your notes of news and your kind remarks about the '58 site
and news page. Our friends in Springfield are already beginning to
think about plans for a Fabulous 50th Reunion in 2008. Let's hope we
have a huge turnout!
