By the way, I rarely tell people this in real life... and I avoid alumni events like the plague... I can act the part of a snob ... but I really am not...

MBM, I perfectly well understand the potential benefit of an organization like J&J ... I perfectly well understand the benefits of people who share similar experiences pooling together their knowledge, resources, and support... and I realize that it's the very nature of the game that some will be excluded...

I'm not opposed in theory to this... I'm not even opposed in practice...

But what I really don't like is the self-consciously exclusionary attitudes that I see actively cultivated in certain circles... ahem... cough... ahem ... and the phony ass sense of entitled superiority that I detect coming from some quarters....

Yes... I'm a Princeton grad... and one of my best friends is a former homeless man who now lives in a housing project...
