No condescension! I'll try harder.

Seriously, though, this is a good point, Isaac. And some of our most successful, and interesting, alumni come from the early entrant program:

Peter Cooley, 1962, poet
Steve Heller, 1971, programmer and author
Robert Keohane, 1961, international relations theorist
Kenneth Knabb, 1965, writer and translator
Laurie Spiegel, 1967, electronic composer
Sydney Spiesel, 1961, pediatrician and clinical professor
Elizabeth Vandiver, 1976, professor of classics
Catherine Yronwode, 1965, writer and editor
