Dear '66 Classmates,
Well, thanks to shirt maven Bob Nahas and the kindheartedness of our Reunions Co-Chairs Rick and Frank (you should know their last names by now), you still can order Masked Tiger shirts today. That would be today. Not tomorrow. The shirt order will be sent to the manufacturer post-haste (in the 16th century, "post" was a word for "courier," so post-haste mean "go fast with my letter, courier.") You also can register for Reunions today, but that will continue. Go here for both. We're already up to 116 registered and counting.
Shirt orders today or nevermore.

This Week's New '66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler. The Puzzle Master contrived this one, which Rich Thomas masterfully solved. Here's the puzzle: Two friends were talking on the phone. One was in an Atlantic coast state, and the other in a Pacific coast state, yet it was the same time in both places. Here's the explanation paraphrased from the PM himself, and Rich nailed it exactly:
"One friend was in Pensacola, FL, in the CT zone. The other was in Ontario, OR, near the Idaho border in the MT zone. They were talking in the early morning of Sunday, Nov 1, 2020, the day DST ended in the US. At 2:00 AM CDT in Pensacola, the time changed to 1:00 AM CST. And at that time it was still 1:00 AM MDT in Ontario; the time change there would not occur for another hour. Their phone call took place 30 minutes later at 1:30 AM CST/MDT."
Last Week's '66 Geographical Trivia Puzzler - Apostrophe Cities. Still open one more week. Response has been tepid, but there are a couple of dozen in addition to these five. Here are a couple to show the possibilities: O'Fallon, MO and Coeur d'Alene, ID. Find some more, and the interns promise to include that place on their post-pandemic grand tour (still in the planning stages - it's not clear who wants to ride with CS major Cy Burnett in his 4-seater touring machine) and send you a postcard. Route 66 (end-to-end) 6-pair double letter cities, and all apostrophe cities will be visited.
