I have rarely written to PAW since graduating in 1959 but cannot ignore the events of Jan. 6 nor the performance of Ted Cruz, from the Class of 1992. I sent the following to Cruz on that infamous day: “As a Princetonian (1959) and life-long Republican until my disenfranchisement by Mr. Trump’s performance and behavior before and since 2016, I’m ashamed and embarrassed by your support for the Senate’s objection to Arizona's Electoral College results.”  

By contrast, I applaud former Senator & UN Ambassador Jack Danforth’s retraction of support for his mentee Josh Hawley’s fist-pumping, crowd-riling seditious behavior  – “The biggest mistake I’ve ever made.” Not surprised, though – Jack’s a Princetonian!
