  • Chuck Morningwood

    Was “professor john a. powell” unintentional or is it a stylistic thing, like “e. e. cummings”?

    • Karen Goff

      intentional. that is his name. or the style he prefers anyway.

    • Mike M

      Um, Berkley? Um, . . . “Racing to Justice: Achieving Social Equity in Our Community.” Chuck, you are not a detective, are you?

      There are snowflakes, flakes of dandruff, and then there are Berkley profs.
