This past week it was a rare privilege to hear the prize-winning historian, Doug Brinkley, at EKU. He presented an impressive, factual, scholarly, and well-researched examination of the scientific and environmental contributions of the two Roosevelt Presidents with a passion only matched by a T. Harry Williams on Huey Long or a Tom Clark on Kentucky. Contrary to what some politicos have said, history is alive and well, and Brinkley proves the point in the best of styles. I congratulate and thank all those who made his visit to our campus such a success.
