By Correct On Campus / June 30, 2022 / Comments Off on Vulgar Language Demeans Our Society

The January 6 House Select Committee hearings have yielded shocking revelations, but one of the biggest disappointments for me is learning that many of our highest-ranking officials and their staffers have extremely limited vocabularies. I’m talking about the ubiquitous use of the f-word. What was once the most incendiary “naughty” word, one that is exceedingly…

A simple trip to the grocery story while wearing a face mask is a lesson in how much we rely on smiles and friendly nods to communicate with others. Our facial expressions send potent non-verbal messages that convey everything from friendly greetings to subtle traffic-directing acknowledgments that keep the flow of carts and people moving…

Flying is Squeaky Clean

By Correct On Campus / July 28, 2020 / Comments Off on Flying is Squeaky Clean

Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is one of my favorite places. It is a clean, friendly model of efficiency, organization, well-curated shops, eating establishments, and services. On top of that, it’s pretty swell as a first-rate international airport. This week, it is also a model for special events planners tasked with organizing major events. It is…
