I'm supposing your tongue is firmly in cheek, tho I do rather like
the image of the tawdry "Harvard Diner." I can hear the baying herd of
new Hahvahd grads baying this time for their commemorative ode over tens
of 1,000s of coffee cups and cigarettes, rehearsing and reversing
decisions at a rate that would make today's grads' heads spin, if the
unemployment stats had not already done that. Neat.
