A post on The Heart is a Lonely Hunter is in the offing. In the meantime, consider the Nora Ephron Experiment. Imagine you’re a journalist writing for a high school paper. Here are facts:
(1) Ken Peters, principal of Beverly Hills High School, announced that the high school faculty will travel to Sacramento next Thursday for a colloquium in new teaching methods.
(2) Among the speakers will be anthropologist Margaret Mead, college president Dr. Robert Smith, and California governor Pat Brown.
