I am sure most of you know that Dan Brown, author of DaVinci code is from Amherst (http://www.danbrown.com/meet_dan/index.html
I think it is pretty cool :)
I just wish he had shown Langdon as a professor from Amherst instead of mentioning Harvard 5 billion times, would have been nice publicity of our school. Except I guess that Harvard attracts the masses more than Amherst does
regardless, I think it is pretty neat that he is from Amherst.
