The last time I was back at my alma mater was 2001, and of course, what I said is what everybody says — boy, have things changed. And now, another eight years after that witness of change, the repetition of that well-worn phrase is once again apt. They must’ve added another dozen buildings, and parts of Cornell are almost unrecognizable.
I returned for the reunion and the author signing. The best part of the event was seeing old friends and also meeting the spectacularly talented J. Robert Lennon.
