Dave Perkins spent decades in the broadcasting industry as a morning show host, including a stint at WGAR FM in Cleveland. He has been a radio station owner, a creative radio production specialist, and he's emptied his share of station trash cans. As a boy he lived in Australia for five years, and in his forties he was abroad again, living in Brussels, Belgium and travelling Europe from 2001-2004. Seeing the world has sharpened his awareness of the uniqueness and preciousness of American constitutional freedoms. He attended the very first Dallas Tea Party in February 2009, along with 9/12/09 in DC and many others.
Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut is another fine illustration of the contemporary state of Higher Education. Johnny Eric Williams, a professor in its sociology department, is among the reasons why it enjoys this distinction.
