THE SATURDAY EVENING POST
November 12, 1960
This picture was taken before my Baker Library introduction during Freshmen Week.  The tour ended after my group exited through the Sanborn House.  However, before exiting, there was a professor, who was conducting a survey on speech.  After my reading my paragraph, this prof proclaimed that I HAD A SPEECH IMPEDIMENT. 
 
Huh!  No one had ever told me that before; and, since this was before "PC Sensitivity," some bozo would have.  In fact, I had been told quite the opposite throughout my youth... that I spoke well and clearly.  Ohmygosh!  Might it have been that every person in my hometown had the same impediment and couldn't hear it? 
 
Whatever, I had failed my first college test and apparently became just an "interesting" research statisitc, for there never was any College follow-up to improve my speech. 
 
So, Read My Written Words...  Because My Speech Is Impaired.
 
IT'S CRUEL TO FIND FAULT WITHOUT OFFERING HELP TO CORRECT IT!
 
Though I "booted" my first Dartmouth test, I learned this lifelong lesson
which is the underlying ethic of this website:
 
Fault-finding won't be published without a constructive remedy
and personal offer to do something to correct the fault. 
 
Any fool can talk the talk, or fault the fault.
And, I have little use for them.
