I heard from Dr. Ron Veenker today via email. Unbelievable. He says he remembers me and sends greetings to my son, Asher. We named him after the title character in My Name Is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, one of the novels Dr. Veenker assigned to our class on Judaism. He's spending the month in North Carolina, waiting out the storm. The internet made finding and contacting him a breeze. Thank God for email.

On another note, Kenny, Dr. Veenker informs me that the proper spelling is yarmulke, so I shall change it once again: yamika, yarmulka -- and finally -- yarmulke. Peace at last.
