These are a bunch of people I sang with, either in the mixed-voice church choir or the all-male choir, while I was in college.

Two political fundraiser/operatives who helped torpedo George Allen's campaign against Jim Webb by spreading the "macaca" video and are also probably responsible for a good 50-60% of the fundraising emails you get directly from Democratic candidates.:

Yes, but I'd be curious to see a similar list of people you sang with in high school. People who attended college with you (regardless of their singing or not) tend to be the most selective slice of extremely talented young people anywhere in the world.

I can't remember if the NYTimes best seller I know from high school sang or not
