The Day

As a lowly lit major, I looked up from my reading to hear an announcer interrupt Mozart with the news that President Kennedy had been shot. I made my way down the hall of the dorm knocking on doors. The political scientist who was home raised her head from her reading as I exclaimed, "Mary, President Kennedy's been shot!" She stared at the wall for a few long moments, turned, and said, "Looks like Johnson-Humphrey in November."

I'm glad she's on our side.
