Budziszewski Question I’m a grad student in history at Big Ten Football State University, finishing up my dissertation and hoping to become a college professor next year. A large part of my desire to be a Christian professor is the desire to help my students — to help them find their way through perplexities. What I want to know is, how do you do it?

She twisted her toffee-coloured hair into a French braid, and her mother helped her apply a stroke of mascara, a dab of lip gloss and a little CoverGirl blush.
