Seems as though message boards are becoming a sensation of the past. I've mentioned this before, but it's a precipitous decline now. There are boards with 30,000 plus members that barely generate more than a few threads per day for conversation. So, before I have to bid all of you cyber people that I've never met farewell, I thought I'd start a thread that is all encompassing as a parting gift. It's general, and you can get anything and everything off your chest.

Mike Vale the eventual bass player for Tommy James and the Shondells (Vale was a "Shondell") is from the suburbs of east Pittsburgh. After the group quit the music business Vale went into business and eventually was a client of our firms. My business partner handled his work. Small world.
Another fellow who graduated with my older sister from Jeannette High School in 1972, Steve August, played most of his pro football for Seattle but played his final year for Pittsburgh. Our firm did some work for him when he moved back to his hometown area. Steve was always a nice guy in high school. Not pro material then, but in college he became "pro stuff."
I graduated with a little over 130 kids. The same HS now graduates around 60. The number of teachers is now a little more than 50 as many as back in the day, but the number of special ed. teachers has doubled according to a friend who teaches in the district.
