Happy 26th Anniversary OLOL Class of 1984

It was 26 years ago today, myself and 135+ other souls graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Regional High School in Shamokin. For some, it was there last day ever in the Catholic education system which today is under siege. I happened to endure another four years of Catholic education and Augustinian philosophy at Villanova University.

Twenty-six years later, I still would not trade anything for it. Some of the things that were happening on the May day in 1984 was that Ronald Regan was seeking reelection, Apple was the heavyweight in the computer industry, George Orwell was in vogue again, and Indian Jones and Temple of Doom was released on that Friday.

Today Apple is alive and well, the corporations are making billions like the oil spill and BP, and we have a "Big Brother" candidate for governor in PA.
