Just As Well There Was No Internet

…when I was there.

A Roman Catholic high school has ordered its students to remove their online diaries from the Internet, citing a threat from cyberpredators.
Students at Pope John XXIII Regional High School in Sparta appear to be heeding a directive from the principal, the Rev. Kieran McHugh.
McHugh told them in an assembly earlier this month to remove any personal journals they might have or risk suspension.

Then Father McHugh was a happy-go-lucky young Irish priest known affectionately as “the Leprechaun”. And we (Class of ’74) managed enough excitement on our own, without having to post about it.

(Strange how everyone knew my name in a regional high school. I’ve always wondered about that.)
Thanks for the memories, Kate.
