The entire Skidmore family is grieving over Michael’s death and Oban and Toby’s injuries at the hands of a drunk driver, and this includes alumni around the country. To paraphrase the Skidmore News’ recent editorial, “it could have been any of us.” We remember making the same treks off campus to the same houses; right down Clinton Street to Daniels Road, to Stables or Alpine. At least, those of us who attended Skidmore after the college changed its alcohol policy in 2005 remember. You see, this tragedy has been ten years in the making, and may require some contextualization that current students may not be equipped to provide.
