JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) “Happy Thanksgiving”


Hello Dear Friends,

As we get ready for Thanksgiving, it is a beautiful time to join in our hearts and minds to give thanks for God’s Blessings. It is a time when we in giving thanks and in some way sharing with those less fortunate, we can remember how Blessed we are. Our Pastor down here in Delaware, Father Ed Ogden, urges us, as we close our day, to begin our prayers by remembering what we are grateful for for the day. I can tell you that you are on my list of that for which I am grateful at the end of each day.

Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

JEMAIL: Kuhn, Rob (MC1973) says “just whining” is no solution


Hi John …

The Liberal Arts side is chiming in here. Per your endnote, which offices have you run for?

Because just whining certainly isn’t any sort of solution. And whining in the guise of street-smarts — as the author of the piece you quoted is doing — is worse. Has he or she run for office? Is that author hiding some great idea because he or she believes the rest of us are too dumb to deserve to read (and maybe implement) it? No, actually, I think that author is possibly being sucked toward Goethe’s greatest sin. I’ll leave that as MY puzzle for him or her to solve.

If you want to see the light at the end of the tunnel, though, I recommend checking out “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” — in some theaters but also streaming in Netflix.

Cheers, John!

[JR: (1) In my younger days, I tried for the R local committee. Wasn’t selected. I soon realized that the deck was stacked. I think the author that I cited is pointing out that “stacking”.  That, and the Fed, has impoverished us. Gooferment Skrules produce useful idiots. It’s a hopeless situation and we just have to survive as best we all can. (2) I’ll check it out but I don’t do a lot of movies. And, when I do, it’s comedies. (3) Thanks for the response.]

JEMAIL: Trynosky, Stephen [MC1968] calls our attention to a solemn occasion


Perhaps Mr Reinke you would be so kind as to post this in appropriate
places. I will stand you a beer at “Coogans” ACROSS THE Street from the
monument should you decide to attend. 

Trynosky, Stephen [MC1968]

[JR: While never one to pass up free beer, all I can promise is “we’ll see”.  Other Jaspers are of course welcome, but the beer may not be free. ]

JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) reports on retreat


Dear John,

Last weekend was the 27th Annual Manhattan College Businessmen’s Reality Retreat held at the Bishop Molloy Retreat House in Jamaica Estates, Queens. It was another success! About 50 men were in attendance and the speakers were very inspiring. Each attendee was presented with a copy of The Catholic Prayer Bible (Lecito Divina Edition) by Sister Joan Curtin, the Sunday Morning speaker.

Plans are already under way for next year’s Retreat which will be held on September 13, 14, & 15th 2019.



McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated.]
