Debate Folks at William Jewell College

William Jewell Hall, across a beautiful quad.

You've got to hand it to Colorado College for getting to finals at the tournament...

I mean, just look at their coach!

Kevin Garner has perfected a spot-on Bush impersonation. I just hope his Republican zombie-friends don't find out about it...

I never knew Fife had a sister!

Creighton Bluejays!

Topic announcement in the beautiful chapel.


Nick Dudley and Chris Shaw...either they are wrestling to determine who was better now that their career is over, or...well...partners sometimes have a lot of pent up "tension."

Quote of the Week

"During the summer, Republican consultants watching focus groups of married women with children, a sector that strongly supported Bush's re-election, found that the mothers often asked questions about Iraq like "Does this go on forever?" But if the women were reminded of Iraq in the context of a war on terrorism—say, by being shown a video of a plane flying into the World Trade Center—their opposition waned."

Last Set of Pictures from Korea

I've been meaning to post these for a while. I feel like I haven't had a lot of time to reflect on the Korea trip, but there's not a whole lot of depth there, at least not beyond most of the things I've said in blog posts. The students were incredible, the culture was complex and beautiful, the politics (at least what I had time to see and read about) are intense, and although there's a great deal of self reflection and social criticism, the consciousness of the country seems swallowed up in consumerism and the fetishization of technology. Still, I can't wait to go back, since there was so much I didn't have the opportunity to see.

Seoul Tower. By the way, the city is not "surrounded" by mountains; rather, the mountains are all over the city. I've not really seen anything like it.

Two pictures of the fish market in Etawan. The old woman working there yelled at me for taking pictures of the dead fish.

Erma posing with an alien.

A christian street band. The guy on the right was dancing like a crazy man. I have a short video of it, but unfortunately blogger will not support it. If you want it, I can email it to you; it's hilarious. stannard [at] uwyo.edu.
