To the Editor:

Thank you for the most recent update on the traditional second year class show. It has been almost 30 years since the Class of 1972 performed in Guaiac Positive to rave reviews. After all these years the memories of the skits, the songs and the class shenanigans directed toward the “New Curriculum” of 1968 stand out as some of the most unforgettable and enjoyable episodes of my Yale experience. (How often in a medical career does one get to lampoon his professors, portray immunologist Byron Waksman and be applauded at the same time?)

Kudos and congratulations to the most recent keepers of the tradition. Indeed, I hope that in 2028 the current class can look back on this bonding experience with their colleagues with the same fondness and joy that my classmates and I share now.
