Hi Stan. Remember the old gang on Daleford?
There were so many of us. Sounds like you’ve been busy with your career. I missed you in NY. I lived in CT for 15 years and commuted to the big appplefor 10 of them. 1989-2004.
Nice to reconnect. Have a really happy birthday.

Michael Ratner, a fierce fighter for the underprivileged, really made a difference in this world. As one of his admirers put it, "He sued some of the most powerful people in the world on behalf of the least powerful." His voice was always there when people were deprived of their rights. I regret so much that I never met him in high school and first connected with him only a year ago on this website. To my great surprise, he knew all about me and had even read my book on Southeast Asia. He was a star, a graduate who should make all of the alumni of Shaker Heights High School proud.

On Dec. 31, I married my longtime partner, Prasong Kittinanthachai, in a ceremony at the US Courthouse in Manhattan conducted by Judge Ron Ellis. In the photo on the right is my daughter Sasha, who graduated from Yale two years ago and now works at a civil rights law firm in Manhattan. A first marriage at age 72 obviously sets a Class of '61 record, if not an all-time Shaker Heights High School record!

After 70-odd years, you still haven't lost your sense of humor!

Hi, Michael, Nice to hear that your kids are following your lead in contributing to the world rather than profiting from it. My daughter Sasha just graduated from Yale, winning an award for her senior thesis on how Argentinian Jews cooperated with the junta, and she's now a paralegal in a small NY law firm representing employees with discrimination claims. If she likes the experience, she'll go to law school and enter public-interest law. I'm impressed to see that your wife heads the board of Democracy Now, which is a terrific program. I'm discovering bit by bit that some of our class have escaped the confines to suburban Cleveland to lead really interesting lives. All the best, Stan
