“I have no idea why I decided to do a voice post right now 'cause I don't even know what I wanna say. I am somewhere on Interstate 70, probably not too far from Antioch, actually. I think I saw a sign a little ways back Springfield being not too far away, so I should probably be paying attention to the road right now. Man, I don't think anyone's even gonna be able to understand me. I don't know. The air conditioning in my car works sometimes and doesn't work sometimes and today's one of those sometimes when it doesn't work so I have the windows open which tends to make for a noisy drive and especially when I'm trying to drive around a truck. Holy fucking hell. I ... well... I ... let's see. It's around 5:30. I expect I'll be in Yellow Springs within the hour. I expect that shortly thereafter I ... I expect that shortly thereafter I will be at Ha Ha's, and what happens after that, I have no ides. But I hope I'm gonna see a lot of you guys there this week. It's gonna be interesting. Alright. I think I might be done.”

“Well, I'm in Yellow Springs, I -- "I am Evil Homer, I am Evil Homer, I am Evil Homer, I am Evil Homer ..." -- I am in Birch and Homer Simpson is singing to me. Hey, anyone who's lived in Birch: Do you know the trick to like how to connect to the internet from here? I kind of have the sense that it requires a type of cable that I don't have which is incredibly frustrating because the phone jacks look like they take something bigger than a phone cord, but I don't know what, or where to get it, or, yea. Um, yea. So I'm gonna give up on that for now and I'm gonna take the world's most eagerly anticipated shower and deal with my email checking tomorrow in the library and maybe by then somebody will have responded and told me how to connect to the internet from here. 'Cause I would really like to, I just don't know how. OK. Shower.”

“OK. Now that I have had the most satisfying shower ever, I'm gonna, once I get to an actual sit down and type computer, I'm gonna post this to the antioch_college community, unless somebody else wants to do it for me? But I want to ask people to get in touch with Mary Lou LaPierre. It's, possibly her extension is possibly 1205, although I'm not sure. She is, I believe, the Vice Chancellor for Development for the University. Here's why I want people to get in touch with her: The meeting this coming Friday morning at 9:00 am, The State of the College Address, where basically the trustees are going to answer the alumni questions. The idea was floated that, I guess, I guess WYSO floated the idea that they could simulcast that meeting on the internet and that would basically be fantastic for all of the alums who can't make it here until Saturday. Unfortunately, apparently Mary Lou LaPierre and the Vice Chancellor or the Development ... oy vey. The Development Office for The University has nixed that. And from what I understand, the only way that we're gonna change that is if we start calling and emailing her and saying "Hey -- you know, there are all these alums who would really like to hear The State of The College Address but can't make it to Yellow Springs on Friday. I think you should let WYSO simulcast the meeting." So, there's my request for the evening. I apologize if some of the information may be a little bit fuzzy (like I'm obviously not totally clear on what her title is). But once I get to an actual computer tomorrow I will see if I can get some more information. But for tonight, that is your mission. Alright? Talk to you soon. Thanks. Bye.”
