  • Found stuff in a dorm storage sale

    September 29th, 2004

    There was a dorm-storage sale last week, and we got a lot of interesting things. The best was probably the mouse for a Lisa or 128k Macintosh. One thing Katie and Sheen found was a photo album. It was rather sad, however, as the album began with a (strongly recommended reading) loving letter from the previous owner's sister. She called him Justin, and a picture of the times at a swim meet part-way through gave us the idea that his last name was Herring. Justin Herring. We set off to track him down.

    We used the amazing facilities of google to find that Justin Herring, class of 1997, had a rather illustrious Swarthmore career. He was on the swim team, setting third and fourth place records in the 200 and 100 meter butterfly in his sophomore year, and helping get first place in the 200 and 400 medly relays his junior year.

    Justin Herring was also a very political person around campus, gaining notoriety in both the Swarthmore Conservative Union and the Amos J. Peaslee Debate Society. In the former he took opportunities to participate in on-campus political debates against the Swarthmore College Democrats while in the latter he took the battle to the enemy, fighting for the Swarthmore name at UMBC and Wesleyan, and winning awards while doing so.

    So what we have here in Mr. Herring is clearly a dedicated swimmer, a mature conservative member of the Swarthmore community. Yet he leaves behind a photo album that his younger sister clearly poured her love into before he left for college. What sort of conflicted man must he be?

    Note to Justin Herring: if you want your photo album, please email the address at the bottom of the page.

    update: Justing Herring has contacted me and wants his album back. It looks like (uninterestingly) he simply forgot his album, with no intent to slight his sister. We're sorting out shipping.

    In closing, Katie demands that I put up this picture of Allison.

    Buckingham Palace

    I love England. Especially because of the big castle called Buckingham Palace. I got to see the outside there, but my mom showed me some pictures of the inside. I love it there. But the outside doesn't look very fancy to me. But I never knew why those …
