Understand, gentle readers, that this blog post should really be just a simple, happy note about a fun event taking place on the Dakota State University campus today, Model United Nations. Over a hundred students will be at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse today from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. debating global issues and learning a bit about geopolitics, diplomacy, and best of all, rhetoric and parliamentary procedure! That last part's where I come in: I get to serve as parliamentarian during the General Assembly. Whee!
We also have the honor of hosting Kent Thompson as our luncheon speaker. He's a bank president over in Howard, but he also has a degree in nursing and makes annual medical mission trips to Tanzania. Mr. Thompson will surely add to an enlightening and enriching event.
But I'm sure that certain elements of the South Dakota blogosphere will in all seriousness take this educational activity as evidence that I and other humble university folk are a depraved cabal of secular globalists, determined to destroy America and your offspring with this insidious indoctrination into the United Nations agenda.
You can watch our corruption of your youth live on a webcast planned for the DSU homepage. The event is also open to the public.
Update: I'll also provide Twitter coverage of the destruction of Bob Ellis's ideals: #dsumun!
