Well, if it's in the Rome News-Tribune, then it must be true. I notice, however, it doesn't say in what nation these scholars - which may include me, but may not - are "recognized." Maybe in Liechtenstein?
Anyway, if you find yourself in Rome tomorrow evening - Rome Georgia, that is - stop by the science building on the campus of Berry College and listen to me criticize science. My assigned topic is "Virtue, Technology, and Wendell Berry," a highly serviceable title. It should be fun, and thanks to the redoubtable Professor Peter Lawler for hosting a fine gathering of "nationally recognized" scholars. And me.
