Nobody ever gets
over high school
clumsiness
I was running late to class in the
Modern Languages Building a few
weeks ago. As I dashed up the stairs
I tripped and fell forward, up the
stairs, much to my chagrin.
Memories of my clumsiness during
my freshman year of high school (and
my sophomore year, and my junior
year ... and my senior year) flashed
before my eyes.
My eyes darted around to make
sure no one saw me, but before I
could escape the scene of the crime,
a girl walking behind me stopped to
see if I was OK.
I nodded in assent, my Polish
genes kicking in just then as my face
flushed bright red. I gathered my
notebooks as quickly as possible and
fled to class.

The meridian circle telescope at the Detroit Obser-
vatory is 152 years old and was originally used to tell
time. The observatory, located on the Hill, is working
on a schedule for more tours this winter.

William Street. In the same
story, the car that crashed
