School Year 1989-1990

The Amazon Society

On April 25, 1999, we made history in the Monty Python Society with our annual elections. The Python Society was taken over by women!

I was elected president, with Rachel Barr as vice president, Holli Weisman as secretary and Cathy Nelson as treasurer.

When we found out, we danced around in a circle holding hands and giggling. The guys promptly nicknamed us the Amazon Society. But after all, they were the ones who'd voted for us.

This, of course, gave me all sorts of new powers, such as the ability to commit executions by pen of those who, like Damon Buckwalter, knew all the words to the alma mater and had the audacity to sing it in the campus eateries:

Of course, the modicum of integrity I retain compels me to tell you this photo was actually taken in the spring of 1989 at "the committee meeting of the Committee for the Organizing of the Soon-to-be-Annual Upperclassman Twit of the Year Run."

I was, however, wreaking revenge for said singing of the alma mater, although without the full authority of the presidency.
