Alum Success

Keith M. Campbell

"The education that I received at Lake Superior State University has opened many doors for me. I have worked with Firefighters and Paramedics for over thirty years as a co-worker, educator, and student. I have been very blessed in my life to have these opportunities. I truly believe that education is the cornerstone of everyone’s career and LSSU provides the best.

My future goals are to become the Director of a Fire Science program and follow in the footsteps of the great educators that I have had the privilege of learning from. This will not be easy, but I believe that these Professors have prepared me to be successful. My achievements will be a direct result of the knowledge that they have bestowed upon me. It will then be my obligation to share this knowledge with others. ”

A call for return to normality in the meaning of words

New Dimension - As in "He'll add a new dimension to the cabinet." Means: "I can't explain why we're hiring (appointing) him/her.

To Share - As in "I'd like to share this with you." Means: "Shut up and I will cram this down your throat whether you like it or not."

Perfectly Candid - Means: "I have been caught lying and now I shall see how little of the truth I must tell."

Active Possibility - Means: "There is no way we're going to do what you ask."

National Federal Word Bank - The Unicorn Hunters request that President Carter establish this bank to counteract depletion of the audio impact of deflated words. The "ultimate four letter words" would go into this bank with a five-year moratorium on their use. As a result of over use in newspapers, cinema, books, radio-TV and even some comic strips, no strong words are available when a man really needs one, as after hitting thumb with hammer.

Alternative Words - in absence of above (1977 only): Balderdash, fap & drat, Godfrey Daniels, rapscallion, and montebank.

1977 RESTORATION: Good - The return of "good" to its former meaning. It no longer means anything important, having been replaced by "super," "remarkable" and "astounding."
