“The trouble with class reunions is that old flames have become even older”

"The trouble with class reunions is that old flames have become even older” is a saying that has been printed on many images. American columnist Doug Larson (1926-2017) wrote the line in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on July 1, 1994.


Wikipedia: Doug Larson
Doug Larson (February 10, 1926 to April 1, 2017) was a columnist and editor for the Door County Advocate (1953–1964) and wrote a daily column, “Doug’s Dugout,” for the Green Bay Press-Gazette (1964–1988), both Wisconsin-based newspapers. The column was originally syndicated through United Media under the title “Senator Soaper Says”; Larson took over authorship in 1980. Previously, it had been written by Bill Vaughn of the Kansas City Star. Larson was born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
