Guided by a Light

Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it, and above all, accurately, so they will be guided by its light.
Joseph Pulitzer, Hungarian-American newspaper publisher (1847–1911)

"There is only one rule for writing: Don't be boring." This is just one of the seeds planted in my mind by author and journalist Thomas Froese, a local lad who went off to live in Yemen and now calls Uganda home. Passing through town, Thomas stopped long enough to teach a few classes at a local university, including tonight's public lecture. I'm so glad that I showed up for this marvelous opportunity to spark my brain . . . and hopefully my imagination!
