There used to be a fairly high-up editor at the SR named Scott Sines who somehow got it in his head that I had gone to Penn State as a college student.
I have no idea how he arrived at that erroneous conclusion. My mother was born in Philadelphia, but that's pretty much the extent of my Pennsylvania connections.
Anyway, that editor has long since moved on. And I am quite sure I never cross his mind.
But if by some chance he did happen to think of me, I wonder if he would be curious about whether I make alum donations to PSU and how I reacted to the scandal at that school.
Well, here's my policy on that.
I wish I had been a big contributor in the past so that I could now slash my annual giving to zero and keep it at that level until heads roll.
