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
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
which is the underlying ethic of this website:
Fault-finding won't be published without a
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.
