POSITRACTION: Think about past Jaspers; Lessons Learned

http://www.legacy.com/guestbooks/sacbee/guestbook.aspx?n=john-kehoe&pid=153628713&eid=lc_gbexpire

Kehoe, John Leo [MC1967 RIP]

[JR: As part of “doing obits”, which I like to think as a “corporate work of mercy” — “bury the dead”, I say a quick prayer for each passed alum. First, when I “find” it and then I “tell” the Jasper Jottings community. Second, when Legacy tells me that their “guestbook” is going off line and I capture all the kind words written about them for “posterity”. I have vague feelings that some day in the distant future someone will find these “valuable”. Mabe I’ll write a book “Fellow alums I wish I knew”, but probably not. ]

January 12, 2012
John was a dear friend through four years at Manhattan College, always there, always dependable. Four of us shared an apartment in our senior year. Like many of our classmates John was drafted into the Army, and since he didn’t believe in doing things half heartedly he opted into the 101st Airborne Division. I know a little something of his experiences in VietNam and can say that his exploits were downright brave, even astonishing. He demonstrated a courage that few other men have. We grew apart after his move to California, but I always considered John to have been one of my best friends ever. May he rest in peace and may his family have peace knowing what a fine person he was and how respected he was by everyone that knew him.

*** end quote ***

This makes me realize how Manhattan College changed me. I was never that brave. And, I know a little about what happened in “Viet Nam, Republic of”. I threw myself into “my drafting”, by doing my best, but that really meant I would not getting thrown into the “meat grinder”.

That killed 55,000 Americans that we admit and huge number of people we don’t know about. A national tragedy. A national disgrace. And, all the broken people who came back. My cousin went and came back alive and “unhurt”. But he was definitely NOT the same person who went and imho was damaged badly for the experience. He doesn’t show up on anyone’s list of “casualties”.

I know others, not as well as him, but I can see that they are scarred. And, I don’t know them that well.

Also, even the third that avoided, evaded, or left, have scars for surviving. I often say that I lost my best high friend when he went underground to avoid the draft. (Although to this day, I think he should have went for the physical. He had a hearing problem in his right ear. But, he was convinced they were taking anyone who was warm. Maybe he was right.) He knew with my security clearance any contact would have been very bad for me. So we had no further contact from February 1970. It wasn’t until the mid-80’s that I learned that he’d died in traffic accident less than 20 miles from where I lived and worked at the time. I took that news hard.

I sad this memory. And, can say: “Yes, Manhattan College is the petri dish where Jaspers form. And those friendships seem like the best of one’s lives.”

All I can say to the “baby Jaspers” who read this, if any, “hold” on to those Classmates you bond with. They are worth their weight in gold.

And, it’s a sad day, when you lose them forever. Even sadder when you realize that you lost them decades before as they just drift away on the tides that are daily life.

Makes me sad to think of all that’s been lost.

Hey John,

I just wanted to drop you a line to invite you to my firm’s Tech in Motion Meetup this evening. A few of our clients will be demoing their products and having a few drinks. Usually a pretty fun event. I also know you are still quite involved with MC and perhaps you could point a new grad in the right direction to do the same. MC has always been a big part of my life as my cousin Jim (’89), my brother TJ (’97) and his wife Maureen (’96) all had great experiences there. Hope to see you tonight!

SANDY GORDON
FORMER RAMAPO H.S. THREE-SPORT ALL-BERGEN COUNTY PICK

Sandy Gordon has experienced the good side of college athletics.
She earned a basketball scholarship at Manhattan College and spent the
past five years on the coaching staff at St. Bonaventure University.

Gordon, 27, a native of Franklin Lakes, recently experienced the
negative side of college athletics. She wasn’t rehired for the 1993-94
season as an assistant women’s basketball coach and was not considered
for the vacant head coaching job.

*** and ***

Gordon would certainly be a high school athletic director’s dream.

She has a solid coaching background and was an outstanding all-around
athlete. As a high school senior, Gordon was a first-team All-Bergen
selection in soccer, basketball, and softball, only one of a handful to
achieve the three-sport feat.

‘I always liked soccer, but basketball was my favorite and, at the
time, that is where my best opportunity for scholarship money was,’
Gordon said of selecting Manhattan College.

She wound up as the school’s all-time assist leader with both the
single-season and career marks. In her junior year, the Jaspers captured
a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title and an NCAA tournament bid.

Gordon said she still plays basketball occasionally and even
participated in the newly formed summer league in Maywood. She also used
the time off to take up golf and to get back into running, a passion
that inspired her to complete the New York City Marathon three years
ago.

JOBIT: McCarthy, Frederick J. Jr. [MC1950 RIP]

http://www.rep-am.com/articles/2012/09/20/obituaries/670977.txt

Frederick J. McCarthy Jr.
Was patent attorney for Union Carbide, UCAR Carbon

SOUTHBURY — Frederick J. McCarthy Jr., 83, passed away peacefully at his home with his loving wife, Martha, his children, and his beloved Labrador, Satin II, at his bedside on Monday, Sept. 17, 2012.

Mr. McCarthy was born May 21, 1929, in Staten Island, N.Y., the son of the late Frederick and Mary (Hickey) McCarthy Sr. He graduated from Our Lady of Good Counsel Grammar School and St. Peter’s High School. Fred attended Manhattan College in New York City and graduated as an electrical engineer in May 1950. While at Manhattan College, he enlisted in the New York National Guard and, following the start of the Korean War, transferred to the United States Air Force in 1951. After graduating from USAF Navigation School in 1952, he was assigned to the Strategic Air Force Command (SAC) and served as a combat crew navigator. After being honorably discharged from the Air Force, Fred worked as an electrical engineer with Ford Instrument Company, also known as Sperry Rand, and during this time also attended St. Johns University Law School, graduating in 1959 and passing the New York Bar examination and U.S. Patent Office Admissions test.

Fred then began his career in 1959 as a division patent attorney for Union Carbide Corporation, Park Avenue, New York, where he worked until his retirement in 1987. He then continued as chief patent counsel of UCAR Carbon Company until 2000.

Fred and his wife, Martha “Jo,” of 57 years, raised their five children on Staten Island until 1978, and after retiring lived happily at their weekend home on Deer Island, Conn., as well as in Bay Head Shores, N.J., enjoying boats, fishing, hunting and cross country skiing.

Fred was a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, (Great Grandson of John Connors, 11th Maine Infantry), the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the American Legion, and was a communicant of Our Lady of Grace Church in Bantam, Conn.

Besides his wife of 57 years, Fred is survived by his children, Rosemary (Peter Harbeson), Julia Ann, Catherine (Steve Brennan), Marcia, Ted (Wendy McCarthy); his grandchildren, Oksana, Amanda, Michael, Ryan and Taylor; his sister, Maureen Dugan; and his brothers, William and Robert McCarthy. He was predeceased by his brother, Donald, and his son-in-law, M. Scott Brown.

Arrangements: A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Grace Church, 715 Bantam Road, Bantam, Conn. Burial will follow in Our Lady of Grace Cemetery. Friends are welcome to pay their respects to the family from 10 to 11 a.m. at the church. The Alderson Funeral Home of Naugatuck, 201 Meadow St., is assisting with arrangements.

Memorial contributions may be made to Regional Hospice and Home Care of Western CT, 405 Main St., Danbury, CT 06810; or to the Alzheimer’s Association of CT, 2075 Silas Dean Highway Suite 100, Rocky Hill, CT 06518.

*** begin quote ***

A Cleveland Irish American has been declared innocent, after spending almost a quarter of a century on death row.

In 1988, Michael Keenan was convicted of the stabbing of 19-year-old Tony Klann in a Cleveland Park. Now over two decades later, a judge has dismissed his murder charges.

On Wednesday Cuyahoga County judge John Russo dismissed the aggravated murder count against 62-year-old after he determined that crucial evidence was withheld from his trial attorney.

No secret: I’m a pro-life & pro-choice anti-war anti-death-penalty little L libertarian fat old white guy injineer!

INHO it makes perfect sense and perfect alignment.

The ZAP (zero aggression principle) sums it up quite nicely.

For the Constitutionalist, I defy you to point out where in the enumerated limited powers that the Gooferment can kill people. the Dead Old White Guys were smart enough to know that they, one day, could be on the losing end of a political election. (Maybe we could put politicians in Hunger Games style “election”?)

Other than Congress can declare war and the power of “marque and reprisal” (essentially a small scale war that the Gooferment just promises to turn a blind eye to private actions), it’s just not there.

Now, sad as it is, there are times when criminals need killing. The police have a right to go home to their families. Agression is always wrong. In the course of apprehension, stuff happens. Only in the movies can the hero shoot the gun out of the bad guys hand. Center of mass and squeeze.

But the “death penalty” is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. And irreversible.

I can make some small argument that a convict like novel character “Hannibal Lecter” is too dangerous to the custodians to keep alive. But those are few and far between.

Argh!
