Class Notes, 1999 March/April

I am writing to you smack in the middle of the holiday season. I have found that while my son, Conor, cannot wait to get some of the gifts Santa will bring him, he wants nothing to do with the "jolly old elf." He is scared stiff when he sees Santa in person! I began my last article with thoughts on the Patriots and Jets. Now we are saying good-bye to the Pats here in Boston (they are off to Hartford, CT) and my Jets have, hopefully, won the Super Bowl as you read this.
