“Bid Every Care Withdraw,” Gregg Lange ’70’s column posted July 3 at PAW Online, is playful and poignant, just like Gregg himself.

People expect that the clever, privileged, well-blessed individuals accepted to Princeton and other Ivies routinely become board-certified thoracic surgeons or intellectual-property lawyers, and many do — though it’s never automatic and seldom easy, even with palpable advantages. And for those with less visibly traditional success, life can at times seem the vehicle for bringing unbidden cares, frustrations, and setbacks.

Reunions are times for celebration and for remembering ... and for caring. A time to care for those with cares — who, I expect, represent a larger proportion of “Old Nassau” singers than we might think.
