Motivation for Monday, 8 November 2015

There’s a lot of talk and action here in Columbia, about and around the University of Missouri and recent calls for University President Wolfe and Chancellor Loftin to resign or be removed. In the coming days, we must listen instead of merely hearing. We must be fair instead of giving the appearance of fairness. Press the buttons that help us grow together, instead of pushing buttons that divide us.

Another school year begins

In 24 hours, I’ll be nearing the end of my first day of Fall Semester 2015. Goodness, I hope it goes well. I’ve been dreading this semester for many reasons. Not the least of which is the current political climate and how I fear it will enter my classes. After all, I’m teaching public speaking and those speaking in public today are… well… They’re a mess.

Here’s my feeble wish for this semester.
