Hokie Pride

I have been glued to the coverage (NPR, Fox, CNN, CBS) on the massacre at Virginia Tech. One of my closest personal and professional friends is a faculty member there. He is safe.

We edited a book manuscript (The Educational Conversation: Closing the Gap, SUNY 1995) and ate at the Hokie House in between sessions at the computer. We rafted on the nearby New River, second oldest in the world, to clear our minds for the editing and conceptualizing work we did over those days.

My friend's office looks out directly upon the drill field from War Memorial Hall.

I love that part of the country, and I fondly think about Blacksburg, Tech, and the southern Appalachians.
