During the year 1990 I saw a psychiatrist named Stanley R. Palombo, MD, at his office in Washington, DC. At my first consultation he asked me what college I went to. I told him I went to Penn State. He said, "I would have thought that you had gone to one of the finer private schools." Did I actually impress Dr. Palombo as being a Harvard alumnus? And, by the way, what's wrong with Penn State? I'm proud that I'm a Penn State alumnus. I think it's a very good school -- despite the fact that a lot of the students are zoned out on beer and dope a lot of the time.
Dr. Palombo himself had gone to the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. He had been accepted to Harvard Medical School, but he explained that "at that time in my life I wanted to stay in New York City."
My friend Dan Mintz went to Harvard. Dan has very sophisticated interests, and if you spoke with him I'm sure he would impress you as having graduated Harvard University -- or one of the finer private schools. Or one of the finer schools for privates.
Actually Dan and I have common interests, or, more specifically, a common interest. Here's a YouTube of Dan Mintz. By the way, Dan Mintz has atomic orgasms.
