Abigail Pogrebin’s recent piece is right in keeping with some of the other work done by classmates (e.g., David Pollay). Click below to hear what Abigail has to say.

Classmate Brett Kavanaugh is a noted jurist on the D.C. Court of Appeals. He is presiding over a high-profile stem-cell funding case right now. It will certainly be interesting to see how he rules.

Team Harkness spent much of the summer on the water. We visited Northern Michigan and swam in lakes both big and small. We also marched in the Johannesburg (Michigan) July 4th parade and, later in the summer, some of us visited the livestock exhibit at the County Fair. It was a big change of pace from Connecticut. When not in the North, we visited the South, spending a relaxing sojourn in Charleston and Hilton Head, South Carolina. Lisa also made it to Europe for business, and took our oldest daughter with her. They were able to visit Paris and Cambridge, England -- so our daughter was able to get a taste of French cuisine and the working world, all on the same trip.
So, what did you do?

What in the world, you might be asking, does this have to do with the Class of 1987? Why should I care about carp in Chicago?
Well, for one, yours truly is a Michigan native and is deeply concerned about the infiltration of non-indigenous carp in the Great Lakes. Why Chicago can’t reverse the flow of its river is beyond me. Really.
More importantly, it turns out that classmate Bob Dow is the judge who is going to hear the carp case, starting tomorrow. Good luck, Bob, with what will be an interesting and hotly contested case.
I did not make this up. Classmate Natasha Zupan is a serious (and talented) artist. If you’d like to read about her underwear, you should click on the link below.
