. . . wait until the New York Post calls to tell you your classmate is on the front page of the NYT for being the Mayflower Madam.

Never got the call from a journalist, but Dad told me she was a distant cousin. Of course, as a Mayflower descendant whose ancestors moved away from Massachusetts many generations ago, I'm not that impressed with the ancestry. Rough guess, probably over a quarter or white Americans are Mayflower descendants. For sure there are millions of us. It's not very exclusive, as far as I can tell.
