Since retiring, I've been volunteering for short term agricultural development projects in developing countries. At last count, I've worked in 24 different countries counting Peace Corps, all with cultural differences from each other and from the US. One of the benefits of that experience is to see other countries, especially nonWestern countries, from a different viewpoint than what the MSM gives you. The two are not at all the same. Another benefit is to be able to explain to Americans that the image they have of foreign countries is often at odds with the reality.

Something interesting is to see that a person's profession is a better predictor of their behavior than their ethnic group. A Malian goat herder has more in common with a Texas goat raiser than either has with say lawyers in their own country.

School Story

When I was at Oberlin the only thing that kept me sane was spending a couple hours a day at Warner playing b-ball. I visited this past reunion and the floor is still there with the overhead running track, but the basketball hoops are gone.

The other thing that helped get through the long winters was snowballing. Killed lots of No Parking signs. One time I threw a snowball that was supposed to land like a mortar on the sidewalk next to some girl walking toward the field house while wearing Cossack boots. It went down her boot instead. Sorry.

downloaded a logo from the internet and took it to an embroiderer. From what I gather it's ok as long as I don't sell it.

I remember James from playing basketball at Warner just about every afternoon.  A person's character is on open display during team sports like basketball, and his character was absolutely top notch.  He was a really great person.  I can understand why he would have been successful dealing with kids with attitude problems.   It gives me a lot of pain to see that he is no longer with us.

EXCELLENT resource on our existentially threatening climate crisis, Dan, thanks for being so patient - your "particular" response is helpful well beyond the current circumstances calling ALL who might need further "guidance" into the reality of What's Happening (here in B.C. it is wildfires/drought/heat domes...which are becoming the new normal. Oh, and as for "disruption"! Today, May 20th, it's supposed to freeze this week, surely a death knell for the promise of pears, and delaying any "planting" beyond hopes for local "food security". Need I add "Attention Must Be Paid"? Thanks again.,

It is our job – our sworn duty – as criminal defense lawyers, to protect our clients from those people.” - Cynthia Roseberry, Defense lawyer
