Jon L. Greenawalt C61 e-mails, The tragic events of Sept. 11 have affected us all in some way. Fortunately, the Greenawalt family are all alive and well and not directly impacted. As Americans and part of the Penn community, however, we share in the grief, fear and uncertainty that these times bring. Our lives and outlook have indeed been impacted if not changed for ever. While its important to bring some order and stability to our lives, both personally and in our professions, there is no return to normal. What was normal before Sept. 11 was in large measure trivial. Lets hope that we do not return as a society to that. What we see now is the resurgence of faith, courage, core values, patriotism, contribution and, yes, even love within America. Lets work to have the new normal be more of that, not only here but in the world. We simply can not have the huge we-they gap continue to go on between America and the rest of the world, or we will go on being hated and indeed breed more terrorism from the disenfranchised cultures. We have been in a surreal bubble; weve been given a wake-up call, and its time for each of us and our nations leadership to heed it and bring us into a new future <firstname.lastname@example.org>.

A friend was fairly certain the black-and-white, football-sized birds diving for sand eels among the lobster pots and boat buoys were razorbills, (part of the alcid family). It was confirmed by a local expert and made the front page of The Vineyard Gazette: In the long, ornithological history of Massachusetts and Marthas Vineyard, there has never been an occurrence like this Normally, if you want to see razorbills around here, you have to go out on a boat in the middle of the winter.

Michael Andretti C90 e-mails, never sent an update to the Gazette before but figure there are old friends of mine out there somewhere who would want to know what I have been doing for the last 11 years. Not much of a story: after graduating, spent two years traveling in Europe and Asia, and doing odd jobs to pick up spare cash to live and travel some more. The only memorable occasion (other than traveling itself) was working as a tour guide for a whitewater-rafting company in Australia in the summer of 1991: pretty exciting. Anyway, came back to my native Chicago in 1992 and, for lack of anything better to do, took a job at a coffeehouse-bakery. To shorten the story down, I opened my own place doing the same thing, called The Double Cross Bun, in Orland Park (Chicago suburbs) in 1995; we opened a second location in Schaumburg in 1999. I got married to Annaliese Burkhardt in 1999 also, and were living in Chicago with two cats and a ridiculously huge collection of CDs and LPs, the product of both of us being incorrigible music lovers. Old friends can contact me at <email@example.com>.
