GREAT STORY - THANKS DAVID D.

ONE DAY IRVING WAS "AT IT" WITH ONE OF THE CESS POOLS SURROUNDED BY [always fascinated] CAMPERS. ONE [rudely?] ASKED IRVING "WOULD YOU DRINK FROM THAT?" IRVING REPLIED: "IF YOU WERE IN THERE TREADING WATER AND I HAD A GUN AND ABOUT TO SHOOT YOU IN THE HEAD, WOULD YOU DUCK? SHABBOT SHALOM REB MOISH

TONY, THAT WAS PHILLY II

How could I have neglected to remember. Many thanks, Tony. I was actually referring to the get together in 1973, coordinated, as I recall, "Providentially" by one Neil Brier. And those of you who knew Neil [and who didn't!] realize that he is about as far from a Philadelphian as one can get. At any ...

MIKE, WHY ONLY PHILLY ALTONIANS?

HELLO, HELLO, HELLO, MIKEY/ROCKY. WHY SOLICIT SOLEY FROM PHILADELPHIANS? IN 1973 THERE WAS A BOWL IN PHILLY AND PEOPLE CAME, NOT ONLY FROM HERE IN NEW YORK, BUT FROM BOSTON AND OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES AS WELL. ALSO, IS THIS FOR NEXT THANKSGIVING? POSTING ON SUNDAY NIGHT SURELY PRECLUDES IT BEING THI...

3FW- Since in 1974 you were at camp,

why play dumb about the matter Jimmy Nussbaum's posting resurrected? [Moreover, 3FW, why this cowardly anonymity? Very UNcamplike!]

DAVID, WHY REVISIT SOUTHEAST ASIA?

THE 3 MILLION VICTIMS OF THE CAMBODIAN KILLING FIELDS HAVE FOR THREE DECADES "SPOKEN" LOUD AND CLEAR TO ALL WILLING TO HEAR. [And why were the killed after America's withdrawal rather than before?]

NOT EVERYONE CHEERED

I didn't and couldn't. For ME to do so would have been an act of ingratitude. No matter what the circumstances [including death], for the greatest nation in the world's Commander in Chief to be forced out of office before the term has expired is simply too distressing. Yes, I recall [sadly] hearing ...

3FW - The #1 Super Bowl Loser

Sunday was a great competition experience and equally great were all the postings before and afterwards. The greatness was not limited to the fact that my favorite was victorious. For 3FW to have not reared his cowardly head was an additional bonus. One would have expected him [or her] to bemoan the...

Re: Kennie Babbie, I Only Pretend

to grasp spiritual matters. I have no training and relatively "late" began to try to make up for lost time. So, you have only my impression of your questions/comments which I hope to accurately synopsize: 1. Is a person bad who only parts with 1% of one's income? I don't know. But one is a better pe...

Re: IMPORTANT CORRECTION

I meant being AGAINST materialism as a SOLE goal characterizes all Altonians including those who came [after many decades] to realize a significant, financial gain from those sacred premises. If my error offended anyone [what else is new?] I [again] apologize.

Idealism Has Its Limits

Kappie Babbie, As one of my kinder in 1984 and having had your dad as swim counselor in 1953 [my first year], I surely feel your [our] pain. Materialism as a SOLE goal remains, I am sure, a strong belief of all Altonians including those who realized a significant material gain from its sale. Let me ...

Re: I Thank Bob, [but]

for his kind personal words about contributors to the message board, but it is unfair to expect one person [or even family] to absorb the entire financial loss had camp been otherwise alienated. Financial loss includes lost opporturnity. If 3 million dollars were a potential but "only" half a millio...

Forgive Me Peter

for the following inaccuracies and/or intrusion into a personal, familial realm. But Chief, like Alton, is a part of all of us. Chief came, I believe, from what would be described as a more modest background than Mrs. M. It was a while ago, but I vaguely recall his telling me that his father was mor...

should Alton be so besmirched. Forget the disrespect Mr. Borowitz displays to the Chief Executive of the most humane nation on earth. [What other county has candidly denominated the situation in Darfur GENOCIDE!] It is time to recognize that most Americans recoil every time coastal intellectuals loo...

Bob and Josh, The ties binding you guys are extraordinary. Chief's wife Rose, our beloved "Mrs. M.", was universally preceived of as a caring, grandmotherly figure. Josh's "Grandma Phoebe" was in that same league. [Who could forget her/her car at that post-camp amusement park get-together - 1976!] M...

No Question, Bob

that the Iraqi THUGS want us out immediately. The average Iraqi, however, does not want the chaos [that's perhaps too mild a term] which would then ensue. I suspect that this [too silent] majority fears getting on the wrong "list" and is being discreet. Thuggery pays, dear friend. The Nazis never go...
