From my new friend Dorothy who is a Gutsy Catholic Mom–LOVE IT! She leads corporate seminars and traces the significance of Catholic teaching and a corporation’s bottom line–something that would be higher if employees learned their 10 Commandments growing up!
My husband got a gift subscription to Forbes magazine, it’s a perennial favourite in our household because both of us are self employed.

Here’s the form response that the President of the University of Illinois is emailing (at least some of) the people who have brought their complaints over Dr. Ken Howell’s firing to the University administration:
