    Frankus - just read your 9-18-16 post:
    "My symbolic moment of how different ND had become happened 15 years ago."
    Dead on - thanks - it sums up what I have noted in the almost 50 years since I graduated (class of 1968. Letter perfect - the only change that I might suggest (I got an MBA at Penn right after ND & both parents were Ivy Grads) would be on the last sentence - "In their minds ND will finally have arrived with the old WASP elite (the Ivys), who will despise them anyway." I would agree, but twist it - they don't despise ND, rather, don't even consider them. There is a whole level of Amherst Williams, Stanford, Northwestern etc in their mind between them and a Catholic school in Indiana. Let me guess - was the well groomed priest with the umbrella jenkins? (he of the snowflake candle light vigil to reduce the angst after election)
    Where is Father Charles McCarragher when we need him?
