My generation ascends to some kind of power or other

True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country. - Kurt Vonnegut, according to the Internet

A high school classmate of mine was just nominated to be solicitor general. Of course, this might be more frightening if I had a real clue what the solicitor general does.

It was hard enough when she became dean of Harvard Law School. I think that brought on my *first* mid-life crisis ;-) When she's on the Court, we can finally relax.

Oh man, that will be too weird. The outfits and everything... almost like having gone to high school with the Pope. On the bright side, there's one thing that you and I don't have to worry about!
