Unrelated, if keeping drug addicts off of welfare sounds like a good idea to you, as it initially did to me, you should click the following link and read the thought-provoking post by Sarah, whose blog I’ve followed for a few years now. You owe it to yourself to read such a thoughtful—and bravely personal—response. Regardless of where you final judgment falls, Sarah’s post will ensure that you’re not holding your opinion ignorantly.

That is all.


  1. Ben, that is way cool about your school... should I not say too much so I don't ruin the ending for people who haven't read it? haha. Will you be involved in this stuff? I mean, that's right up your alley!

    And I liked Sarah's post. It does make you think. Sometimes things sound so black and white the way they are presented. It's good we have people that think deeper and share it with the rest of us.

  2. Thanks for the link to my story Ben! I need to spend a good week catching up on blogs...looks like some good things continue to happen for you!

  3. I am totally awestruck about your Prof. Mele and your Florida school. Truly you are where you want to be. This is very exciting.
    Now I will go read the other part/story on your blog.

  4. Mudder here again... I just read Sarah's post and enjoyed it. I don't feel very qualified to comment on it, but I am happy to see things from different perspectives. I do believe that those of us who have must be responsible to those who don't have. If we all cared for each other, the burdens in the world would be lightened.

  5. So cool! How involved do you get to be?

  6. Ben, birds of a feather flock together. You seem to be at the right place at the right time. Learn all you can from the process; the professor is lucky to have you there.
