Fun facts about Bates, II

As a college founded by abolitionist Free-Will Baptists in 1855, Bates admitted women and people of all races from the very beginning.  Can’t help comparing that to Williams (and Bates is always comparing itself to Williams).  Williams was founded in 1793, admitted its first black student in 1885 and first woman in 1970.

Dude I don’t know much about menswear but I’m gonna say we did okay at the Kiwanis Sale when I sprung a semi-formal event on my brother  with no warning & we had to go out thrifting the morning-of and spend $12 on this Christian Dior suit.  (The $4 dress shirt with the tags still on was a nice find, too, though perhaps a less incredible one than the suit?)  Bet it’ll look even sharper when he gets the jacket tailored from Size 40 down to Size Lanky.

The apocalyptic scenarios did not help—the terrible truth is that we had a profound, historical attraction to apocalypse. In the end, the only thing that could create the necessary traction in our minds was the intimate loss of the things we loved.

Is it weird that I love this embossed wallpaper that’s cropping up in cafés around town?

I am dressed like Mr. Rogers on this rainy teaching day and it feels like just the right combination of crisp, cozy, and disarranged.
Abstracts are hard.  If I could say it in 350 words, I wouldn’t have written it in 200 pages, okay?
