Not about this person in particular, of course, but about a homeless man wearing an NPC's letters.
I remember seeing a picture of three men in the middle east, two American contractors and a local man. The local man was wearing an Alpha Delta Pi sweatshirt. I wish I could find the picture!

Seriously, this came with the following email:


I have attached a little humor for you from Iraq. It's actually what
spawned my inquiry into the old chapter. One of my responsibilities out here with the Iraqi battalion is overseeing construction projects in support of the unit. I am having a fort built for one of my Iraqi companies and have a local construction contractor working for me. I was out at the construction site a couple weeks ago and saw one of the workers wearing an odd article of clothing that looked familiar. I called him over (which is a task when no translator is handy) and saw that he was wearing a sorority sweatshirt!! I about lost it. I yelled for my translator, then made him explain the sweatshirt and its meaning to the worker. Needless to say, he was not pleased to be wearing a "girl shirt". I explained that it meant he was part of a club (easier to explain club than "sorority") of a LOT of beautiful women, knowing first hand since I dated a few in my day, but he was still not pleased. So please, pass this on to the appropriate sorority sisters you know, and tell them that their rush efforts in Iraq are seriously slipping. This isn't the caliber I remember of their sorority at ASU. It might even be worth posting in the IFC office for all to enjoy.

I hope to talk to you again and see you at one of the events this fall.

ITB,

As is custom during finals weeks many greek-lettered clothes, cars, and library study sheets populate nearby campuses: Delta Sigma Phi; Pi Beta Phi; Alpha Omicron Pi; and Sigma Kappa to name a few.

Also noting a comeback of sorts for names/initials of a university across the backside of athletic shorts and sweatpants. Recalls the day decades ago when it was common for greek letters to be similarly located.

I never did understand that trend. You'd be sitting on your letters, and, if you're unlucky, "tooting" through them. Also, I went to MIT, so the I would be sitting right on top of my butt crack.

I see a lot of Greek letters while out and about here in New Orleans. I've seen plenty of men wearing fraternity letters on Bourbon St. and elsewhere in the French Quarter. (Not so much sorority letters, probably because NPC sororities like to distance themselves from any association with alcohol.) There's a Kappa Delta who parks in the garage adjacent to my office (I've never met her, but she has a KD license plate frame). I've seen plenty of Greek letters on "front license plates" as Louisiana requires only a rear license plate. (Which is damned annoying when you're trying to figure out if an approaching car is your Uber ride. But I digress.) It's not surprising - Tulane is here in New Orleans (and is home to AEPhi's first chapter outside New York), and it seems plenty of LSU students graduate and move to New Orleans.

Say a car with Tri Delta letters Saturday. Most week days I see a Lambda Chi car headed in the same general direction as me.

At a Thai restaurant Friday: a darling young woman wearing a Pi Beta Phi t-shirt with "Beaux and Arrows" (from a date function? It was so cleverly done). Driving home from said restaurant, at a stoplight:a Delta Sigma Theta license plate holder on the car in front of me.

One of my daughter's chapter formals was always called this...I don't remember if it was fall or winter, but we have a couple souvenir plastic cups in the kitchen cabinet. Obviously, I'm not motivated enough to check the cabinet to see which semester it was...I just know they have the date and a cute ballroom dancing graphic.

Roaming around Pittsburgh the last couple days, I saw a Phi Beta Sigma "license plate" (there is no need for a government-issued plate in the front of your car in PA, so decorative ones are an option) and a Kappa Alpha Theta license plate frame.

Random spotting of greek 'letters':

While viewing miscellaneous youtube videos, came across an old homemade film entered into a TV Commercial Contest for a local radio station. The homemade video was filmed on campus at a local university. In the video was a young woman, walking in a group, wearing a green t-shirt with THETA written in big white letters across the front.
