The Harvard Law Review has selected Mitch Reich as its new President. Reich is the first openly gay President of the journal. Reich may be unique in this respect, but he is otherwise a classic fit for the job. He was his class president at Dalton and graduated from Yale College.
I particularly loved this quote from the Harvard Crimson article:
"When Mitch was in Kindergarten, he was writing books,” says his mother, Diane Cohen, referring to short picture books with plots and drawings her son started making from age three. “His teacher excused him from naptime, saying he was an author and had more important things to do than nap.”
Every boy should have such a kvelling mama!
