We hired the former CEO of Lotus as the new prez and everyone expected things to go 123.
You make a good point! This is the list deathprattle should use if he really wants his daughter to go to the best school...

There is someone here who has an avatar that looks remarkably how I felt. If the young lady spends 4 years in Boston, I fear for her diction. (Nobody says a THING...it means accent or intonation!).

It's in one of the prettiest parts of New England, the Berkshires are more like Vermont than Mass. There are a number of colleges in the general area.

They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

A few things I think we forgot to mention in favor of being in Massachusetts:

1) Their 2 wonderful U.S. senators; well someone just mentioned Tedward Kennedy.

2) Barney Frank in congress

3) Michael Dukakis

3) Same-sex marriages are legal there

4) Plymouth rock

5) Large Irish population
