Subject:   Completely Irrelevant to SHAKSPER

I would appreciate a favor. My son is applying to colleges and I would 
like a suggestion or two from you.

He is bright, and interested in writing, literature, music, a little in 
theater. He plays the violin quite well and won a musician of the year 
award. He is a work in progress, obviously, as all high school graduates 
are. He is interested in a small mid-Atlantic, residential school, 
perhaps as far away as Massachusetts, Virginia, or Ohio. He is applying 
to Goucher, SUNY at Purchase, Ithaca College, perhaps Wooster. He has 
friends at those, who have said good things to him, and have given him a 
sense that they would be good schools for him. If you are at all 
indicative of the school, where are you? Do you have an opinion of 
Juniata, Gettysburg, Allegheny? SUNY Binghamton? He would like at least 
one or two more schools to consider and apply to.

On another subject, I really enjoyed the two book reviews. What 
interested me more than the two books was the writing styles of the two 
critics. I might be inclined to read about obesity through the ages, it 
might be fun.
