Go for it Mr. Reid!! I thought I was awesome for getting my bachelors degree at 54! Appreciated every minute of it, and went back to school because I love to learn.

If you like the place that much, why don't you graduate and become a professor?

No weirdos here, just UVa students. Unfortunately, I can't please everyone with my chosen path, but I will teach one day after grad school if I am fortunate enough to be accepted. I will walk the Lawn in the Spring of 2014. I will wear the Honors of Honor, and graduate from he university of Virginia. That is good enough for me no matter what happens with the rest of my life. Wahoowa!:)

Glad to see they highlighted your achievements, Mr. Reid. Age obviously has no bearing on one's contributions to the university. I'm proud to be part of the Jefferson Society with you.

LOL and someone with no direction and nothing better to do wants to become a bureaucrat and make decisions for someone else. You'd think after all that time, this person would have the wisdom to let experience be the students' REAL teachers, but I guess there's no fool like an old fool.

For King Ralph, I recommend that he drop out of school, move out of his parents house, and start his career flipping burgers. Get out and earn a living for a couple years and see how you feel about it.

Haha I've worked many jobs where do gooder idiots with nothing better to do like this old man with book knowledge and nothing else completely screwed up major projects or influenced management into making horrible product decisions that ended up either having to scrap the entire platform and start over or cost them hundreds of thousands in having to half ass a compromise solution later on.

Why don't you take your meds and settle down, it's pretty clear you don't know any better.

What do you think of the old hippies that refused to sell out?

The same thing I think about all hippies, they're strange, burnt out on drugs, and probably weren't too bright to begin with.

Yeah, my bad...

I need to proof read. I meant, what do you think happened to all the old hippies that refused to sell out? All the ex-hippies I know became web designers, computer engineers, programers, investment bankers, stock brokers, etc.

I don't really know because I don't hang out in those circles, but I'd imagine they live the way they think: simple, strange, single minded lives and whenever they mix with actual people they probably become unbearable because of their devotion, narrow world view, and lack of social grace.

Gawd, and I thought I had some preconceived notions but you take the cake. Narrow world view? Your world has yet to experience the big bang. You don't hang in those circles cause they wouldn't degrade themselves with your presence. Gawd.

Oh I forgot, their tendency toward horrible, confused metaphors that make no sense (because of burnout caused by drugs and patchoulli).

Thanks for reminding me.
