JEMAIL: Rooney, John Peter (MC1965) is not Rooney, Tom (MC1967)


22 March 2015
Dear John,
I am happy that Tom Rooney approved your endnote.
I do too, but I did not write in.
I’m “John Peter” Rooney, Class of 1965, Engineering,
and there was no other Rooney in that Class.
You’ll have to figure out which Class “Tom” was in.

[JR: Sorry for the misattribution. Too many Rooneys, and other similar names.]

Rudi Giuliani sticks his foot in his mouth again
February 20, 2015 11:21 AM MST

*** begin quote ***

I have followed Rudi Giuliani’s political career since he and I were students at Manhattan College in New York City in the 1960s. Giuliani was a year ahead of me but he was a big man on campus and our path crossed frequently, both in class and out.

But Rudi Giuliani has a long history of saying stupid things, and Wednesday night he stuck his foot in mouth again and started chewing shoe leather big time.

*** and ***

Giuliani said this at that Republican dinner, “I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America, doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

Where Giuliani got the idea the President Obama doesn’t love his country is beyond me, and beyond reason.

I can NOT let this go by.

I became a non-fan of Rudy when he became pro-choice to get elected. Divorces, several. Cheating on spouses, often. And, then taking on Ron Paul about blowback — which sunk Rudy’s political ship — as if he’d never heard of the concept. And, for long long while, he was “the ONLY Manhattan College alumni” you ever heard about. Argh!

That being said, I would point out to him and others that we can never know what is in any man’s heart. I wouldn’t judge any man by anything other than his actions. (“by their fruits, you shall know them”?)

I can understand Rudy’s frustration. It certainly does seem that BHO puts the USA down at every opportunity. And, his sense of “optics” gives the impression that he is a “trivial person”. I think his eight years have been a disaster for the USA, the world, and the black minority population that invested all their hopes in him.

I’m not sure that any politician can / could have / will set the USA back on the correct track. I don’t think the D’s or the R’s understand the terrible “slave collar” we have put on future generations with an 18T$ debt, grazillions in unfunded liabilities, and complete demoralization / debauching / demotivation of the economic engine that was once the USA. 

All that being said, both Rudy and the Author seem to have forgotten some of the key lessons of Alma Mater — intellectual honesty, mutual respect, and charity. 

I’ll leave it at that.

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) finds a picture in the NYT


Dear John,

On Monday, October 27th, page A22 in the print edition of The New York Times, there is a picture that accompanies an Article entitled “Generations of Lawyers Gather for a Reunion Like No Other” about a reunion of current and former members of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. There is a Manhattan connection in the Picture – On the left end standing is Otto Obermaier, ’57, on the right end is Judge John Martin, ’57, both former U.S. Attorneys for the Southern District, and in the Center Standing, is James Comey, Director of the FBI, son of J. Brien Comey Class of 1953! (Rudy Giuliani, ’65 is also a Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District, is not in the picture as he appeared via TV).

An impressive group of JASPERS!
