Letter: Reunions and torch-passing

I enjoyed the editorial on reunions [“It’s about time,” June 13]. We just got back from our 55th college reunion at Brown University in Rhode Island. I had the great pleasure of hearing my son Craig (Nobel Prize in 2006) give a speech in which he told the crowd that, as a scientist, he had the standing to tell his neighbor he is directly related to the grass he is mowing.

We love the march down College Hill that inverts, as the new fresh seniors walk past us and then we walk past them, all amid much cheering. It seems like a passing of the torch.
