It’s survey time again!

It’s survey time again!

One of the many interesting things about our 50th Reunion was the Class Survey.  The response (both statistical and emotional) was so strong that we’re doing it again! The same team that created the 50th survey is about to launch a shorter but just as incisive questionnaire focused on what’s changed, what’s stayed the same, and what’s new, as we totter into the second half of our 70s.

Look for the email with the survey, coming soon.

Podcasts: Not Yet

Editor’s Note: This is a report from the survey about classmates “consuming” podcasts, including lists of the podcasts they listen to.

Wow, was I wrong!  I love podcasts and spend more time listening than I do watching TV.  But of the 42 classmates responding to a “quick survey,” 12 had never listened to a podcast on a phone or tablet because they were […]

Survey: 4. Politics Then and Now

Survey: 4. Politics Then and Now

We are only a couple weeks away from the mid-term elections — consequential elections being held during a time of extreme partisanship and vitriol. Reasonable minds can debate whether 1968 or 2018 represents the worst case of division within the country in our lifetimes. That said, now seems like a great time to report to you what the Class Survey said about our political opinions in 1969 and today.

Survey: 2.  Sex and Health

Survey: 2. Sex and Health

Editor’s Note: This is the second in a multi-part series reporting on the results of the Class Survey taken last winter.

Any shrink will tell you that the three taboo areas people don’t like to talk about are sex, money and their relationship with God.  Our Class Survey asked about all three.  And we are going to share results in that order: Today’s report is Sex and Health, including reports on how fat we are, pot use, prosthetics, smoking, sexual activity (and aids) and other measures of our health.

Take The Class Survey Now!

I just finished taking the Class Survey — you know, the one for the 50th Reunion?

I can report that the Survey itself is really excellent. It was simultaneously fun and thoughtful. And it’s now ready for YOU!
