[meet] Haiti

Guest post by Dr. Jean C. Griffith
Before January 12, 2010, most Americans didn’t know much about Haiti. Take the cabbie who drove my husband and me from the airport recently: when told where we’d been, he asked, presumably in all seriousness, if Port-au-Prince was in Wisconsin.
By now, he and others know a few things about Haiti: that it’s the poorest country in the hemisphere, that most of the population lives in poverty, that most are illiterate, that Haitians are known for their fortitude, their ability to survive despite enormous obstacles. …

[do] Guide to the South Side

Last week, I was talking with a friend who told me he had recently been working on the south side. I chimed in to talk about my experience working on South Broadway (at Dillons at 47th and Broadway… don’t get the wrong idea). It was at this point he gave me an “Oh no she didn’t” look and promptly told me that he’d been south but not THAT far south. This conversation solidified that more people should be exposed to the greatness of South Wichita because it’s obvious that some …

[meet] Ask verb: It’s 9 pm. on Friday…

Each week, the verb [ICT] team will answer your burning (or not-so-burning) questions. Is there something you’d like to know about us? E-mail the editors or leave a comment.
It’s 9 p.m. on Friday. Where are you and what are you doing? How about 7 p.m. on Wednesday?
I have graduate classes at WSU on Thursdays, so I spend a lot of Wednesdays studying at places with free wi-fi. Hopefully on Fridays at 9 p.m. I’m either at Mort’s or Lucky’s with friends. – Ashley Perkins
Wednesday: I am pacing my house waiting for Glee …
