Pizza Saves Vassar Grad From D.C. Train Crash

In her column this week for the Bangor Daily News, Vassar alumna Meg Adams writes how stopping for a slice of pizza may have kept her from taking one of the trains that crashed in Washington D.C. last week.

"I am one of the hundreds of people with a 'close call' story from Monday. If I hadn’t worked overtime, if I hadn’t been late, if I had had that meeting on Tuesday instead of Monday. The examples pile on, one after another, shared in whispers or repeated loudly as people cope with the tragedy. When it comes down to it, this was the point for many D.C. residents and commuters: any one of us could have been on that train."
