Chapter 3. Haaavad
Despite this checkered record, and perhaps owing to a clerical error, Peter was accepted into Harvard. His classmates included Microsoft founder 645 564Bill Gates, Microsoft CEO 645 481Steve Ballmer, Supreme Court Chief Justice 645 510John Roberts, FDA Commissioner 800600http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CommissionersPage/default.htmMargaret Hamburg, Wall Street TV guru 645 517Jim Cramer, and world’s-10th-most-powerful-woman 800600http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoe_CruzZoe Cruz. He 640 505didn’t know any of them, to the lasting chagrin of his parents.
Peter 405 540majored in biochemistry in college, for reasons completely unknown. He also sang a cappella with the 800600http://kroks.comHarvard Krokodiloes (left), became their musical director, and went on to appear as a 580 400very convincing old man in a production of the musical Cabaret. Shortly thereafter, the notorious 800600http://www.tomlehrer.orgTom Lehrer cast Peter as the President of the United States in a staged reading of the musical Of Thee I Sing (center right). Alas, a rather thoughtless act of bravado (below right), which his parents blame on lasting psychological effects of Hurricane Diane, brought an ignominious end to Peter’s college career.
After this, Peter decided to pursue a career in law.
