My Month Has Been Made

One of my students from Organizational Behavior and Management dropped by my office this afternoon. He told me that during his summer job, the concepts we talked about in class really became real to him, and he reflected on the class more than any other he’d had before. With great frankness, he mentioned he was the kind of student who crammed at the last minute and then often forgot about the content, so he was even surprised he retained so much from the course.

What a nice way to begin the semester!

Let Freedom Ring

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.
Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.
Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice.
Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.
Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

Things I Hate #387 | Things I Love #1011

… The State Farm Guy….

I really, really hate him. I even wrote to State Farm telling him how much I hated him. I think he is supercilious and condescending. Today, I found a Facebook page called “I Hate the State Farm Guy.”

But… I *love* the AllState commercials with Dean Winters as Mayhem. He’s so funny. I especially love the commercial where is the Teen Girl driving a pink SUV in the mall parking lot.
