School Story:

Favorite memories of Elmhurst Swimming Pool, East End Park: doing double gainers off the high dive; eating machine-made popcorn from the concession house because I was always starving after swimming and diving; checking out the girls on the pool bleachers.

Playing 16" baseball behind York Cafeteria during lunch hour was always fun.

Ha, ha: another "semi-retired" soul, who can't quite live without a vocation. I tell people here in India that my vocation is doing nothing. Best regards.

Belated Birthday wishes, my friend. I thought your comments about Mark Leonetti were beautifully stated and so thoughtful. Have a very Merry Christmas!

I also didn't have a personal friendship with our classmate Mark Leonetti; but I do recognize the importance of people speaking out about the destructive course of mental illness. Our social shame prevents us from admitting and showing that individuals with mental problems can lead productive lives.
