We all get Alumni magazines, I get one 4 times a year. Stories about things going on and interesting people and oh yeah SEND US MONEY. I graduated from Wentworth Institue 51 years ago, yeah in the last century. Got my quarterly update today and on the front cover is a nice looking guy holding a Timberland boot he designed. Since we all have a connection to Timberland via Ken B I was interested. Turns out there are 6 Wentworth grads working in the design department at Timberland. Some for as long as 18 years. These guys are industrial designers who use modern day software tools to design boots and other outdoor gear. So bottom line we've finally figured out who all is responsible for Ken jetting around the world and helicoptering into his mansion in Rangley, it's the Wentworth guys.

I had to read that 3 times to be sure you weren't calling Ken a "nice looking guy". Just saying...

I've heard that Trout consider him quite handsome.

That's because they have the same amount of hair and smell the same.....

Al,

I've hired a few of those Wentworth guys and most of the others have worked on my team at one point or another. That school produces some of the best ready for real life designers to be had.

To the rest of you - I love you too.

Ken
