In ResponseIn Quest of Unity
I really enjoyed reading the comments of alumni and friends of Baylor that appeared in the "Building Unity" article in the fall 2008 issue of the Baylor Line.
While the opinions were diverse, they shared the common themes of
respect for Baylor and the wonder of its impact on individuals over
many generations of students.

Way to go, Baylor Line.
I had no idea that our alumni body is divided, disgruntled, frustrated,
and thinks less of Baylor than when they were there. But now, thanks to
the most obnoxious "article" I have ever seen published by the alumni
association, I am fully informed of the problems that plague our
school. Your "article" did a great job of educating all of us happy,
clueless, rose-colored-glasses-type alumni that our school cares more
about the problems than the good things being accomplished. You
certainly got your point across.

the omission of Ralph and Linda Klatt as members of the Baylor Alumni
Association's Torchbearers Society in a list that ran in the fall 2008
issue. The Klatts have designated the following tributes in connection
with their gift: in memory of Mr. Rudolph William Klatt, Dr. Herbert H.
Reynolds, Mrs. Donald Dauwalder (Peggy), Mr. and Mrs. Earl Bunch, Mr.
James H. "Henry" Klatt, and Ann Davis Christian; and in honor of Dr.
and Mrs. John Belew, Dr. and Mrs. William Cooper, Dr. Judith Lusk, and
Dr. Dovalee Dorsett.
