I began this blog as a Liberal Studies grad student in January 2008 for my final course — the Public Intellectual Practicum.  Early postings were course assignments (January-May 2008), but with graduation in the past, it is time to address other issues in my life.  This is not to say course work was not important to me.  The work I did and hope to continue involve my love of theatre, and my desire to raise decent children.   Join me, won’t you?  And don’t be a stranger. 

Topics range from my exploration and research of pre-school bullies to my experience with South Bend Civic Theatre’s production of Doubt, A Parable.  My first entry on bullies is titled “Suspicions.”  It informs the work I’ve done so far.  Beginning in June, you can also join me on my summer reading assignments for teaching AP Literature and Composition and other thoughts of a high school teacher.

  Feel free to comment to any and all works; I look forward to the discussion.

“Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door, putting on his Big Boots.  As soon as he saw the Big Boots, Pooh knew that an Adventure was going to happen, and he brushed the honey off his nose with the back of his paw, and spruced himself up as well as he could, so as to look ready for anything.”  Here goes . . . .

    Hi Mike,
    I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts. Just beware you don’t become like Ignatius Reilly, the protagonist in John Kennedy Toole’s “A Confederacy of Dunces”.
    Ignatius thinks he’s above it all. But he laughingly is not.
    I love you,
