  1. Ah…the memories. Maggie Smith always reminds me of The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie, but not because I’ve seen it. Because of Rod McKuen’s song “Jean.” In the Fall of 1969, one of the perks of being a high school senior was being permitted to park in the front lot nearest the school entrance. Every morning, most seniors (including non-drivers like me) grouped ourselves into cars in the senior lot, where we hung out listening to the radio until the bell rang signaling the start of the school day. Every day that fall, when “Jean” came on the radio around 8:00 a.m., seniors started gathering belongings, slamming car doors, and trudging to the school door because we all knew that, with the last notes of “Jean,” the school bell rang.
