So you share my pride in being a Dartmouthian, I'm sure.

But hell, who doesn't? (to either or both of your statements.  Interpret
at your discretion.)

Well, a little known fact is that I, in fact, did sit at the back of
Grade 12 Canadian Law with Todd Zanni from Adrenalin.  He was known for using
examples from his own life to illustrate points of law.
A fascinating fellow, to be sure!

I should also point out that another of my classmates from high school,
Wayne MacPherson (English 441 and Accounting 441) went on to front
Chaz Rules for a brief, Shining (Here's Johnny!) moment.

I must admit that I've never associated the "big band" sound with ICU, 
although some say there's a certain Glenn Miller influence there, you know,
a certain "je ne sais quoi".

And contrary to popular belief, *NO ONE* is obligated to play the
New Palace.  As Faustus points out, Hell is wherever God is not and even
ICU is eligible for redemption.
