Dave and

I teach in the Writing Program of the Department of English at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. A journalist, too, I write social/political commentary columns appearing Wednesdays and Sundays in the Perspectives section of The Star-Press (once at that site, scroll down to my visage), a 32,000-circulation daily in east-central Indiana. For several years, I wrote from Muncie for the Indianapolis Star. I'm also a member of Steeler Nation. Isn't this downright Dilbertish that almost one word in ten takes you away?
