Married Louisa Fontaine Washington Dawson same yr. 2 children: Anne is an acupuncturist; Philip just had book on chasing bin Laden published last month: " al Qaeda's Great Escape". He is home with both arms and legs from Iraq on a book tour. His wife, a Serbian lady, continues to consult with the Coptic Church in Egypt by internet. Thinking of building them a house in our front yard to break the habit of chasing terrorists for the last 18 yrs.

I ran a traverse on our land a few yrs. ago. Had forgotten a lot. Closed within a few minutes. S-more gave me a broad view of the world. I now, after doing social work for 18 yrs and retired for 20 yrs, spend time doing non-violent protesting of any and all wars. Have been arrested only 2 x so far. At age 76 there is much left to do. God bless your efforts. John Smucker ps: Anne also went to S-more, finished in Econ. honors.
