Unfortunately our strict policy prohibits us from presenting the Middle School of the Week.

Wang chung that wang dang doodle all night long.

Middle schoolers, of course, have a strict policy REQUIRING such reporting.

We have a Toki Middle School here, but it's moving to Colorado. Or Oregon. Whatever, man.

I'd like to see their mascot.

Down the road, at the intersection of I495 and Rt3 in Lowell, stand the Wang Towers (now officially named "Crosspoint"), which were so named because they were originally the headquarters of Wang Laboratories. The Wang Theater in Boston is named after the very same Wang.

Clearly Wangs were once pillars of the local community.

Wang made excellent computers for their time; some of them ran on 8-track or cassette tapes instead of the giant reels used by IBM then. I remember seeing one used in the early 60's to calculate thermal coefficients from wind tunnel tests. Of course, we were less interested in the results than in asking the professor "How's your Wang?"
