you got me — strange isnt it?

all i can think of is indians fought on both sides during world war two. hitler promised them independence from england and to leave them alone, so maybe they still have a soft spot for the guy? i dk just a guess.

some personal history--this was Champion Jr. High School in Painesville, which was demolished before I was born. However, I recognize, at least so far, three people here who I remember. top row, 3rd man from the left was the principal of my high school, Jack Britt. Middle row, 4th woman in from the right was still a guidance counselor in my high school, Marguerite Lapham. Bottom row, the man 3rd from the left was my science teacher in the 8th grade, William Murdoch,  None of these people are still living, as I doubt anyone in this picture is. Well, maybe the very youngest. All of this means is I'm really old :(

I loved this picture of Philip Roth (at the back of the row on right and published in the NY Times)--who died the other day at 85--at his high school prom in Newark NJ. His old neighborhood in Newark was the location for many of his stories. Brilliant writer, maybe a little troubled :(
