I'll have a chance to try this in January. I'm not sure exactly how or why, but
I've been invited to present a short (20 minute) talk to the Jacksonville
chapter of the Association of University Women. In light of the proximity of
MLK's birthday, my projected topic is "Race in America: the fallacy of
