John is an Indiana native who moved to Oak Park in 1976. He served on the District 97 school board, coached youth sports and, more recently, retired from the law. That left him time to become a Wednesday Journal columnist and now a blogger. John has some pretty strong opinions about Oak Park and a wry way of putting them across. You won't want to leave his blog without leaving a comment of your own.
The late great Redd Griffin taught philosophy at Triton College in the last years of his life. I was one of his students. After he died in 2012, our class decided we would continue to study on our own.
As previously discussed, following my trip to Yellowstone National Park I have become a nature enthusiast, believing that spending too much time indoors looking at screens is the road to perdition. As a result, I have begun spending considerable time sitting outside on my deck enjoying the trees, clouds and the gurgling of our Home Depot fountain.
