Recently, I had the good fortune to hear a talk by the vice president of the Georgia Right to Life. He presented interesting but disturbing statistics about the abortion industry in the U.S. The huge number of 55-plus million abortions since Roe v Wade in 1973 can be broken down to one fetus every 23 seconds. Since I began typing this, three fetuses were aborted.

An all too familiar scene was enacted on the campus of Swarthmore College during a meeting on May 4th to discuss demands by student activists for the college to divest itself of its investments in companies that dealt in fossil fuels.
Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that there are a few things that brand me, which include my affinities for great teaching and learning, good food, fashion and travel. In fact, my emphatic conviction that fashion is a channel for individuality and a very common form of self expression would lead one to question why I would vie for high school students in the local public school system to wear uniforms.
