When I began teaching at The Westminster Schools in Atlanta, GA, they assured me I'd get a politics class within a year or two at most. Five years later, no politics classes, only math. Dr. Lence and I both started as math majors in college and finished in political science. Since I left the political theory program at UVA with my Master's five years ago, I have been longing to get back to political theory. Now, I am moving to Dallas to teach math AND a philosophy course that starts with the Ancients: Plato, Cicero, &etc. and then covers "the philosophy of revolutions," into existentialism the last trimester. I am thrilled to be getting back to the material that Dr. Lence taught me how to love. I will assuredly give paper topics that begin "In what manner and to what extent..."
P.S. As many of you know, Dr. Lence signed his correspondence, "rml". In going through some emails, I found one in which he signed "Reason Means Little".
