The Harvard Man

You don't often see Harvard stuff on people around the Northern Virginia area. Most of the university livery is from in-state places like George Mason, James Madison, or Virginia Tech. But here is a fine bearer of the Crimson, sitting in Starbucks doing whatever on his computer, while his huge backpack occupies a whole chair. It looks like he is emerging from his backpack, but it is actually next to him. Long, long ago I was a graduate student in Greek and Latin at Harvard, but the experience was so miserable that I would never, ever wear anything crimson or Harvard-branded. This guy may have had a better time there.

hmmm, somehow the idea of a guy coming out of a backpack seems like it could work for something!
