Framing the Dialogue

All In Favor…

I have the dubious task of representing my employer on the board of some NGO (“non government organization) that provides services to local public officials.  If you have read my postings in the past you may have a sense that my personal views on issues are often at odds with those of my employer.  This organization, however, was different in that they were not political.  I could tell by some of the other board members that I am out numbered, but this organization is non-political.

A number of my recent book reviews were written decades ago.  The odd thing about all of them has been how pertinent they are to the world we live in.  Economics In One Lesson, written in 1946, seemed as if it was written to address our current economic woes.  The 5000 Year Leap was written in 1981, but is based on teachings from the 1970’s and unveils the glories of our Constitution for many of us who learned very little about our founding documents other that memorizing a few pages.

February 20, 2009 Update:  A recent article on college hiring (actually a lack of hiring) people of color and women gave the NCAA only a C+ grade.  This is studied each year by the The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida.  Yes, apparently there is such an Institute.  I wonder who pays for that institute.  Like a chess game, the NCAA responded with thier own statement from their Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion.  Yes, apparently such an office exists.  Sigh.
