Carleton 3 oaks N

Another Blow

M is down at the Mayo Clinic. All of us in colgaffneyis are worried.

Today I received bad news from another side of my life: One of my Carleton classmates was diagnosed with colon cancer on Friday. Not a really close friend from the old days, but someone I like and respect, and with whom I have been happily working on alumni business in recent years. I e-mailed her last week asking for a favor on behalf of another friend, and was wondering why she had not replied. Now I know.

Otherwise, this was actually a good day ("Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?").
