liquid reason

We met over lunch with the founder of Liquid

Reason, an interesting Website whose purpose is to teach young

people social marketing. I also answered quite a few press calls that

arose from yesterday’s press conference. Reporters are mainly interested

in what is actually a fairly peripheral topic: the size of the decline

in youth turnout since 1972. In the evening, I briefed students from

University of Maryland and other Maryland state campuses about the Rhodes

Scholarship. I tried to persuade them that the application process can

be valuable, even though the odds of success are very low, because writing

an application essay forces you to come up with a provisional plan of

life just at the point when you are finishing college and your future

is less planned than it has ever been before.
