Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, June 14, 2021

A while back, I stated that my alma mater, Eckerd College, could boast of only one truly famous graduate: Novelist Dennis Lehane, of “Mystic River” fame.

Zac Turney aims to be EC star Number Two. He landed a spot as one of the Gilligans on this season’s edition of “The Real Gilligan’s Island”.

As an alum, I’m so damned proud. And, not wanting to pass up a marketing opp, so is the school.

I particularly like how Turney wound up being a Little Buddy (tough for him if he doesn’t like that nickname):

“I was thinking, “I don’t want to be Gilligan, I want to be the professor.’ Then I saw where you have to have a Ph.D., so I said, “Well, looks like I’m stuck as Gilligan.’ “

An early lesson: Stay in school.
