About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: April 26-27

Turned in my econ case study and spent the rest of the day dozing off under my hat. Did I mention that we were allowed to wear hats in class? It was supposedly the result of some lawsuit in the '70s -- along with boys' hair being allowed to get long, and being allowed to eat and drink in class. Lots of lawyers live in Barrington. Until smoking was banned from public schools, seniors over the age of 18 could supposedly smoke in class, too. As it was, lots of kids used dip in class; the fact that you could drink gave them perfect cover -- they just spit into a soda can.

I have to believe that the headline writer at the Sun-Times who came up with this teaser box was treated to a beer after work. Pullout section on root canals! Hah!

You have to understand that I usually didn't go to be until midnight or 1am even in high school. Hell, in middle school. So going to bed at 10:30 was highly unusual, and only due to pulling an all-nighter Sunday night.

The quote from Abraham Foxman, "Antisemitism has become kosher again," is pretty great. I wish I knew where it was from; probably a newspaper or magazine article.
