I love where I work. This campus is filled with lots of really bright, idealistic young adults, and a bunch of older adults who are paid to encourage them in their idealism and pursuit of learning for learning’s sake.
The latest project that’s started on campus, spurred on by an alum, is War News Radio, a near-daily broadcast of what’s happening in the war in Iraq.
Pretty amazing stuff. It’s a real, refreshing alternative to the alternately hysterical/blind-eye coverage from the mainstream media. I highly recommend it.
