Moody Alexander Skydives For 80th Birthday

When I serve lunch at Highland Park High School with Dr. Moody Alexander, we have a lot of time for chitchat. We discuss my kids, his grandkids, sports, politics, and whatever else pops into our heads. But when we worked together last Thursday, Dr. Alexander had something far more interesting to discuss than anything rattling around in my head. The previous Saturday, he had celebrated his 80th birthday by jumping out of a plane. By contrast, I celebrated my 37th birthday last month by … I can’t even remember. Lame.

    When I was four, I figured out that Moody was the coolest guy in the world. He had a poodle named Tino, who could salute the flag. Fun was always the order of the day at the Alexander home. And now that I’m 48, I’m confirmed in knowing that Moody remains the coolest guy in the world! Happy Birthday, Moody!
