A Successful Student

Liberty regards religion as its companion in all its battles and its triumphs, as the cradle of its infancy and the divine source of its claims. It considers religion as the safeguard of morality, and morality as the best security of law and the surest pledge of the duration of freedom.
- de Tocqueville, 1835

Suppose you were an idiot...
And suppose you were a member of Congress...
but I repeat myself

The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness;
to an opponent, tolerance;
to a friend, your heart;
to your child, a good example;
to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you;
to yourself, respect;
to all men, charity.

Personal Opinion:
If you went to the theater and the movie you were watching ended 5 minutes short, you'd get upset. Yet in class, many are pleased when the lecture ends short of being complete.
You are paying good money for education. Don't you want your money's worth!!

Drug Talk
My Drug Lecture
I began talking with my students about drugs around 10 years ago. From those discussions, I put together the paper at this link. Regardless of what you believe about drugs, my discussion provides honest information about these chemical compounds. This is not a "Just say no" lecture. It is an open and honest discussion of what these chemicals are. Please read.
