Let's Remember That
A few years ago, I was talking to a gentleman who graduated from Oliver Ames High School in the late 1960s. He was an athlete at OA, and an outstanding student who went on to a prestigious university where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He graduated from an equally prestigious law school. This gentleman was married with adult children, and a successful and highly regarded lawyer who lived and worked on the South Shore (not in Easton). Anyway, in our conversation, he was telling me that he had recently gone to watch the local high school boys’ basketball team play one night. His own kids had graduated from the high school, but being a former prep player hoops player himself, and someone who enjoyed basketball, and also someone who …

The post is titled “The End Of Paterno.” Here is the second paragraph of the post: The last week has torn me up emotionally. This doesn’t matter, of course. All that …
