Gallaudet, past and future

Some months ago we posted a few entries about the controversy at Gallaudet over the selection of the new school President. Yesterday on WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi show both incoming President Jane Fernandes and outgoing President I. King Jordan took questions from Kojo and callers.

The show was transcribed live and the full transcript appears here or you can listen to the show here. It’s long on atta girls for Dr. Fernandes and surprisingly free of critics, whether that’s a result of deliberate choice by Kojo and the screeners or a calming attitude at Gallaudet is hard to know but the show is interesting never the less.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
