I’ve mentioned around the shebeen before that my father spent 35 years as a teacher and administrator in the public schools in Worcester, MA. (Heart of the Commonwealth, represent!) Originally, he planned to be a lawyer when he graduated from Holy Cross. But then there was a big government program called World War II and he joined up with a big government program called the U.S. Navy. When he came back, he did one desultory semester in law school and then went and got his Masters in education.
