Rogers vs. Kennedy

Dave "Buck" Rogers ('88) is running for Congress in Rhode Island against Patrick Kennedy. This is Buck's second attempt to unseat, in my humble opinion, the most inept of the Kennedy clan currently serving in public office - and that's saying alot!

I think I might just have to get me a Rogers for Congress t-shirt.

Dave served in the SEAL's after leaving Tulane, some cool pics are here.

September Get Together?

Brother Frederick has proposed a get together in The Big Easy during the weekend of September 25. There is a home football game against Southern Mississippi on Saturday. Please use the comments section to express your interest or comments.

Also, it might be good to have a couple of people serve as an ad hoc committee to organize some events. Any volunteers?

Doncaster here.

This list is great. It's so nice to hear what everyone is up to.

I am currently living in At Moravia, New York and will be here for 5-8 years, depending on behavior. I am involved in the criminal justice system (white collar crime unit) and am also involved in elderly-outreach services. (Sir could you REACH for your credit card and take it OUT.) I stress educational rehabilitation. Mostly I help owners of capital reserves (cash and jewlery) obtain a orderly redistribution of strategic investments. No paperwork necessary. I did have my picture listed on a National Register for a short time (state and local). I am in regular contact with a number of municipalities and
federal agencies, that kind of thing. I also work as a consultant to younger financiers and teach a seminar in the minimum security unit.

Several of my old friends have been in contact, but I keep telling them the bank put a hold on my account, and that kid doesn't really look like me anyway.

Glad I am a part of the list, because they don't allow me to have sharp instruments like pencils and pens. Write back soon!

Thanks for adding me to the list...very cool idea to put it together.

The quick and dirty...

Living in NYC w/ my girlfriend...(don't worry Krauser...this one drinks).
In week three of a new job. A buddy from Vandy B-school and I started a mortgage firm in beautiful Newark, NJ...right in the heart of Tony Soprano land. Knox, you would feel right at home, the hookers hit the streets once the sun goes down.

Had dinner w/ Blough and Vito and respective wives...both, by the way, married way over their heads. Saw many a Delt at the Tulane function in NYC a couple of weeks ago. Ended up getting loaded w/ Andy Frank and Paul Cashman at the bar across from my apt afterwards....good to see them both...from what I remember.

Everything is good on this end. Hope all is well w/ everybody else.

some things in life you just don't want to remember and some things you just can't forget, such are the days of Tulane. I was only a Delt for a year but I hope that gets me a ticket onto this list.

I am living in New Zealand at the moment, working as an orthopedic surgeon, no shit. anyway,moving to Denver to join a practice in a couple of months. Hope all are well. How do i find out where everyone is?

Yo everbody, just checking on in. Either from my "pornogrophically beautiful"(dan) lil community or my "backward ass bumfuck Louisiana town" (knox). Ah, such a way with words lil bro.

Anyway, I also thought dan's comical dirge was a bit humerous, so I decided to share it with the little filly. Well, after the mild snickering it yielded(sorry,dan,only mild) she spotted Krauser's pix, and in particular the Formal shot. Now, I think we can all agree that back then I was a total stud, at least that's how i remember it. So anyway,
kelly says, "Wow, Look at that flat stomach. What happened to that!?" So, like, that's kind of a blow to the ego I must say. So maybe at this first big reunion convention meeting, we give a 6-pack of the most caloric beer to the delt who is closest in size and shape to his/her former self. Party on.

Knox---your still a pussy.

p.s. i am not a surgeon,nor a lawyer,nor a crook, nor a missile salesman. I have never done the wheelbarrow(Is Z on this list?) I am but a small-town regular dude.

p.s.s. Krauser's pit pic is 100% Dave Rogers. No debate.

p.s.s.s. I have been listening to Da Cosmos tonight. "The roof, the roof ..................................."

Fellow Delts,

My second son arrived today! 8.7lbs with strawberry blond hair (I'm expecting lots of mailman jokes))! His name is Davis. Will send pix.

Starting Over

Welcome to the second incarnation of BetaXiDelts.org. I have resurrected the site based on numerous conversations I had with others at Ray O'Neal's memorial service - the gist of which was that we all feel the need to stay in touch better, and perhaps organize a regular get together of sorts so that funerals don't become our de facto reunions.

The purpose of this message is to outline some initial thoughts I have about this site and it's potential role in allowing us to stay in touch more efficiently. I hope that you will utilize the comment function of this site to add your thoughts about any of what comes below.

The purpose of this site, as stated above, it to facilitiate communication between a group of alumni of the Beta Xi Chapter of Delta Tau Delta from Tulane University. It is hoped that this communication will be a central repository of, and distribution point for, information that will result in a better awareness of the status of individuals and their respective families, location, careers, and other life events. Furthermore, the site should assist in organizing regular social gatherings in larger metro areas (i.e. New York, D.C., San Francisco, Atlanta), as well as a large reunion occuring every other year or so.

Due to the fact that I am a member of the Class of '89, I expect that most of the people that will be interested in participating in this endeavour - at least initially - will be from classes within a few years either side of mine. Due to the demise of the chapter soon after, I don't forsee that we will have much in common with the new generation of Beta Xi Delts, and, frankly, I don't think we as a group will have much in common with the Delts that came more than 5 or 6 years before us. That being said - I don't think we should formally restrict our membership in any way, but that is a topic that is up for discussion.

Site Content and Services
My initial concept of this site includes the following features.

  • A membership function that restricts access to those with a username and password.
  • A member directory with contact information, a couple of recent photos, and perhaps a short profile of the person.
  • A mailing list feature that will allow distribution of emails to the entire group simply by sending the message to one centralized address.
  • The regular posting of updates submitted by individuals about themselves or others.
  • A section dedicated to upcoming social events and news about planning for the next reunion.

The format you see here is simply a basic framework with which to get started. If the interest is there, I will customize the site.

I tried this after Kevin Netting passed away, but didn't get much response. I have no desire to bear the entire weight of this thing on my shoulders, but am more than willing to contribute time and energy if a core group of other folks will do the same.

I look forward to your feedback.

YF Dean
