Difficult Dialogues

RSR knows that, secretly, you pity us poor Kansans.

Now, however, it's time for all of you smug residents of the worldwide reality based community, and I mean every single one of you, to be jealous -- if not green with envy -- of those of us who live in Oz.

The Hall Center for the Humanities is presenting an occasional lecture series at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, "Difficult Dialogues at The Commons," designed to foster informative and civil dialogue on difficult and volatile issues in American society. The inaugural series of lectures and informal discussions will explore the proper roles of reason and faith in the human enterprise.

Read the speakers list, below, and weep that you are not a Kansan:
