Tom and Ray the Car Talk guys on public radio stated it this way: “If a man speaks in the woods and his wife is not present is he still wrong.”

[JR: Interesting formulation. I’d say it: “If a man speaks in the woods and his wife is not present is , he IS still wrong.” Laugh!]

[JR: Thanks. I appreciate the support. “If a tree falls in the forest, will a woman still tell a man he’s wrong?” Or something like that.]

JEMAIL: Antenucci, John (MC1959) on Kellogg, Junius [MC1953 RIP]

2015-Feb-23

“He spent the remainder of his life living in the Bronx, until he died in 1998. There were testimonials for this great hero in Manhattan College, yet for some reason the rest of the world never quite recognized his gallant life.”

Jasper Jottings / John R.

The above quote is from the article by Filip Bondy regarding Junius Kellogg.

One of the tetimonials was created by Alpha Phi Delta Fraternity between the years of 1956 and 1959. The fraternity developed a major dance in honor of Junius Kellogg recogning the courage and integrity it took to break the points shaving scheme that was tarnishing the game of college basketball. Manhattan College has many heroes that graduated from our college. We should all be proud to stand with the memory of Junius Kellogg and what he did to make our College proud of what he did. I know that I am very proud to be part of Alpha Phi Delta, the fraternity that recognized our fellow alum, Junius Jellogg.

JEMAIL: Antenucci, John (MC1959) found Patterson, James [MC1969]

2014-Nov-26

John,

I was very pleased to see James Patterson, author, being interviewed by a panel of four hosts on the The Today Show, NBC. I came in on the tail end of the conversation. He was talking about two new books, “Hope to Die” and “House of Robots”. If any one wants to see it, the show aired on NBC The Today Show November 24, 2014. He had many things to say about the process of Co-authoring which he has been doing for some time.
