  • Hmmm..a practice strike just two months before the November elections that gave us the Carter and Mondale slapstick duo? Oh, and Big Al Gore,to boot. Priceless!

  • I was telling the parent of a new Webb School student about this strike just the other day.

    My parents, and my best friend's parents, each considered sending us to Webb during the time when it wasn't clear how long the strike would last. My friend's parents pulled the trigger; mine didn't.

    I sometimes wonder how my life might have been different, better or worse, if I'd gone to Webb.

  • I see several faces I recognize, but the one that stands out to me is Mr. Frank Edwards, who was my 7th grade English teacher. He taught me alot over the course of that year, and I still cringe a little when I think of those trips to the hallway. Boys, line em up and assume the position. Great memories!
