    Dear Fourth Estate Folks;

    With all the exciting new happenings in the world of GMU sports, we sometimes forget that George Mason proudly holds a Number One title–but it’s not for touchdowns or home runs or baskets. It’s for the gorgeous creation and manipulation and glorification of the written and spoken word! In 1979, GMU was Number One in the Nation at the American Forensics Association National Tournament.

She was also named GMU’s Outstanding Graduating Senior, class of ’79. Since then, she has been writing a long string of edgy novels and provocative non-fiction, and has written an article about the Paris Attacks which has gone viral in Europe.

To call the Attacks on Paris a distraction seems horribly callous, cruel, and petty, I admit, but are any of us this side of the pond really going to do anything about them? Probably not. So of course they are a distraction. A mere distraction. The merest distraction. I know, I know, I have probably already made you mad. But bear with me. Follow my logic …
