[JR: Or you can send your info to Jasper Jottings. I suspect that there might be a few in the Alumni Office and around the Quad that secretly read and “lift” from Jasper Jottings. I’ve always been tempted to put a “red herring” in. Like the map makers do; to prove you stole their map. For example, on many Rand McNally maps Tyne Court is a through street; not a cul d’sac. For awhile Fedex and UPS trucks would zip around the corner, only to zip back out just as quick. As they discovered the dead end. It would be really nice to know how many readers “we” have. But, who cares. It’s just an ego thing. But at 4am when I can’t sleep, those venial thoughts creep into the noggin. So what if never get a doc of letters from Alma Mater, I know I’ve “doctored” enough letters here. Amazing how many folks spell wurds worse than the fat old white guy injineer dos!]
