Jim “Foot-in-Mouth” Webb, Virginia’s senior Senator, delivered the keynote address at Emory and Henry College’s commencement yesterday. I attended EHC and this doesn’t surprise me. I realize that it is customary to award honorary degrees to noteworthy speakers, but I just can’t seem to be able to call him Dr. Webb. Personally, the campus and its people are among the most friendly I’ve encountered. However, the conservative viewpoint is an endangered species at Emory and Henry and is generally drown out by the liberal activists. My advisor and I spoke at great length during “advising” sessions about my personal politics. Dr. Lane, if you ever read this, I appreciate your drive to make me say “why” I believe what I do.
