OK, I'm a little old for the stereotypical co-ed/professor crush, and I'm just hearing him on cd. But, I love this man. I had been listening to podcasts from NPR while at the computer or played movies on the computer from netflix until I used up all my minutes. Then I discovered books on cd at the library.
First it was (and I'm not going to remember his name) a guy who is a reporter for NPR who read the Encyclopedia Britannica from A-Z over a year. Now, If I had seen the book, I would have checked out the book and given up quickly. On CD I listened to the whole thing and it was mesmerizing. I loved it! Should I be admitting that I did better by listening to a book as opposed to reading it?
Then yesterday I checked out Lies My Teacher Told Me by James W. Loewen. Now he is not reading it (just looked at that an hour ago and was crushed). But its written beautifully. He'd a sociology professor at the University of Vermont. He went through 12 twelve high school textbooks and basically tore them apart and tells us what really happened. He lectures a lot, but on his website there are no stops anywhere near me. He has me making up things to do, so I don't have to leave the computer and I can keep listening. But, maybe my crush is on the reader? I don't think so.
I'm going to email him from his website (I doubt I'll get a response, It sounds like he's a busy guy) and maybe get some advice. On what? I don't care. My knowledge kernel of a theory. Is a fish a good pet? Is it OK for a woman to send a man she has never met flowers. And yes, I'm sure you are asking yourself, its been awhile since I've had a date.
