Joseph’s 9th grade science teacher told his parents that he’d taught Joe everything he could and that they should seek some more advanced opportunities. Joe had a paper route at that time and, as luck would have it, the Star Tribune offered its carriers a Saturday meeting with representatives of two eastern boarding schools that were seeking to broaden the socio-economic range of their student bodies. The school that appealed most to Joe was Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, and Exeter was happy to accept him. At Exeter he got a C+ in Nuclear Physics, and was almost kicked out for an egregious violation of the fire code. Joe is now a theoretical physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
