SOCIETY AT LARGE

Society at large

This category offers some sort of flexibility and probably brings some sort of relief to those who can’t easily get into ‘standards” boxes. Here contributors can write in general about society, always from the social perspective. I do not want to write anything more, it is up to you, your creativity to find a way to fill this space

I met Jim in mid-1979 as we were both heading off from California to graduate school at Boston College.  We were studying workplace democracy.  Jim was a bit older than me but we lived together along with Jim Gallese, in a roach infested apartment in Cleveland Circle.  Jim McRitchie taught me to make stir-fry something which has led to a healthy diet.  Jim continues in his "retirement" to do good in the world and is very entertaining in telling me about his life.  Enjoy
