So much is writ of late regarding the twisted values of academe (umm, Columbia U.) that we may all miss the indisputable fact that some of our finest minds--indeed, our finest characters-- do choose to make a difference by way of teaching.
Of course. to truly teach one must be a superior communicator. That requires an elegance and clarity of thought coupled with the ability to put said thoughts into words.

May all of our children have at least one like Randy Pausch to inspire them.
