Students in the course gain experience conducting interviews & writing articles in Spanish, and provide culturally-relevant news content for Latino students.
In July, Cal Lutheran launched our Community Scholars for Black Lives program, which engages students in work with community leaders to combat racist structures and systems. Our first three scholars are Sia Williams, Landry Irumva, and Black Student Union vice president Zino Ayetuoma. Williams said, “Our system was not created for Black communities to succeed, and it is important for America to not only own up to this disadvantage but to fight to make the system better for our future generations.” via The Echo

I've been to funerals. Conservatively speaking, 100 % of the deceased are described as,'Jolly good fellows!' I have always scoffed. Now, in my own life,my ex-wife will surely make me the sad-exception. I have Grandchildren who I will certainly never again see. I am psychically unable to reconcile a life without a partner of 30 plus years. I suppose I can deal with separate lodgings. She is unwilling to have an amicable relationship. I am invited to family gatherings but with caveats I can not abide. She's changed the locks (why), so I must knock and expect a pleasant exchange, "How's the weather," but, not much more. Such encounters I'd consider a grotesque-parody! I want nothing to do with it! Rousseau said, "To know all is to forgive all" I always thought that he was full of baloney! Now, not so much...

Oh how I miss the amateurish doe-eyed writing of The Echo. It was torture to read your naive hyper liberally-slanted articles each week, and I regret wasting precious minutes of my life allowing your vapid words to enter my consciousness. Keep listening to your professors' opinions and regurgitating them; you may just end up Chief Editor for the Huffington Post. Peace, Trace
