Heard your interview with Scott Simon this past weekend (Sept. 6). Was stunned to hear you are a fellow Nettlehorst-ite (is that correct English?).

I matriculated from there in mid-1960s, when Mr. Block was was principal. Like you, I think I had at least one teacher (does the name Petrucci ring a bell?) who had the same “personality” as the instructor noted in your book review.

At any rate, enjoyed the piece and enjoyed tripping through the past remembering those Nettlehorst days.

My goodness! Not only do you tell me Mr. Block still principal in the mid-sixties, but apparently they still had teachers like I had in the

late forties!
