Musings from A Mad Man

Musings from a Mad Man David Bell may be the closest thing we have to Roger Sterling today (or Bert Cooper as Andy Brownell has said), and for good reason (apart from the fact that he was around in those old Mad Men days). The man has quite a résumé. As the former CEO of... Read More

The Value of Curiosity in Today’s Educational System

As an avid (and somewhat recent) fan of author Bill Bryson, I received a notification in my Facebook Feed the other day from his author page on an interview from The Telegraph. In it, he declares one of the biggest failures of modern education is a lack of excitement. In fact, he goes on to... Read More

It’s something we all... Read More

Don’t judge a book (or painting of a book) by its cover

A couple weeks ago I visited the Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State University. There was one very large piece of art hanging on the wall, titled Gray Alice, which I noticed but didn’t pay much attention to.
