Those Old School Ties

This one's kind of fun.

One of the most important things about school is the people you meet there. Todd Cohen and I told a class of Drexel University students that they should keep track of each other after graduation and that they'd be surprised at how wide their network was and how high their college connections would go in 10 or 20 years.

For myself, my college classmates include the Mayor of Philadelphia, the owner of The Philadelphia Inquirer, and the visionary producer behind Wicked and Legally Blonde, none of which I knew in college, so it's a little hard to argue that I should have kept up with them better.

Anyway, the reason I post is that East High School in Denver, Colorado, is inducting a large number of alumni into its Hall of Fame. I was amused by the depth and breadth of the people who went to my high school in the past 130-something years. Here are some of their pictures. See if you can tell who they are:
