Comments:

40 years as a professor of philosophy, the last 30 at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Published a few books, a bunch of articles. Specialized in ethics and social/political philosophy. Also history of philosophy (esp. Nietzsche). Planning on retiring soon. Probably have colleagues who think this is long overdue. Still seem to be out of touch with my Buddha-nature, but working on it. Enlightenment is hard to find and long to seek.

School Story:

I attended four different high schools (it was a very unsettled time in my parents' lives) and MHS was the only one from which I have only good memories. Try as I might, I can only remember fine, decent people. That doesn't make a very interesting "school story" but it could be worse (trust me).

Tom! I vividly remember the time you took me and Steve Webb for a flight over Sonoma County. We saw Santa Rosa, the Russian River, and Bodega Bay from high in the air, in this tiny plane. What a thrill!

Hello Lucy!

I have fond memories of our discussions of the Met's Saturday opera broadcasts. Also of borrowing piano scores of Wagner's Ring from your parents' library.

Geez, Greg. You turned out to be one of the most interesting people I would ever know. Had I known this back in the day, I would have taken you more seriously. Actually, I think I did take you seriously, but maybe not enough.
