Reminder (Kim)

Just a reminder that today on the George Wythe College Hour they discussed The Lonesome Gods by Louis L'Amour. I haven't listened to it yet, but I hope to soon. I did listen to the 3rd show they did on the Invitation to the Pain of Learning by Mortimer Adler today while I was doing the dishes. I read the article a couple of days ago (its only 3 pages and pretty easy to understand) which I was glad I did. They had a very interesting discussion on education and the pain that is associated with real learning. They also discussed why as parents we try to keep our children away from this pain, even though they really want it and need it. Let me know what you think. I really enjoyed listening today and look forward to listening to more.

That was a great article and conversation! I too really enjoyed it. Have you read the article, "The New Feminine Story" by Meghan Schulthies? It's a submission to the Statesman, the newsletter of GWC. Keep up the great posts!
