  • Did you say Don Rickles and Johnny Carson are your preferred comedians???? No but honestly. How old are you! Hahaha just teasing! Are you deeply religious, or just a contrarian? Sorry for my comment on your last blog post, you were expressing negative feelings about being asked to report on things. I am sensitive to people being targeted and bullied, and try to give support. People might appreciate that or resent it, or be neutral but that's ok to me. We should all be more concerned about people's mental well-being. It seems like adding a sour note to your writing is just your personality thing so okay, sorry If I came across as narrow-minded and petty . . ...,,, Have a good day!

    Not bad.

    I think you might have been able to make two blogs out of this:

    1) Being the butt of the comedy, and why it didn't bother you.

    2) Being the only non-student to attend, and why you went to stay involved.

    Both would be interesting reads, and you could go a little deeper into both.

    For instance, on #1: maybe a bit more on the Malcolm X Institute, a bit more on your college experience with them (as briefly noted by the mention of your friend), or even a bit more on your desire for a more "inclusive" atmosphere.

    For instance, on #2: maybe a bit more insight into the lack of alumni participating - is this "normal" or do some events draw more alumni than others? Is there a trend over a period of time in alumni participation? And of course, get into the meat of why it matters to you so much to continue that relationship with your school.

    I did sense you were trying to tie the two together at the end, I just don't know that it works well.

    Overall, I will say that I think Wabash is missing out by not having you as a PR person.

    In your scholastic pursuits, this may be where you want to go...
