Summer of probably 1959. Innocent days for most of us. Kids from ’59-‘60-‘61clumped at the beach, discussing our imminent adulthood, soaking up sun and calories, bodysurfing to cool off, boys teasing girls, comparing feats of strength and agility. Suddenly Tommy flips up into a one-hand stand on the sand and an equally alert photographer gets off a shot. A few days later the photos are brought back to the beach and there among them is a perfect image of Tommy. Held upside down, it looks as though he is holding up the world, Atlas-style, in his beautiful youth and strength, character shining through. Goodbye, Tommy. Clearly you will be missed.

How we all loved Slings and Arrows. Laura Boutilier had a wonderful sense of humor and was a class act all the way without a trace of "mean." We could use that today.

Do you really mean "spewing?"

In mentioning the "Trojan Gift Horse" you have conflated two dreadful unmentionables: the Trojan Horse, which you should not bring into your home (unless you don't want offspring?) and the gift horse, whom you should not kick in the teeth, or something like that.I know, I know. Picky, picky, picky. But the waste is enormous.
