Just spoke to 70 fourth graders. Captured their attention with my prairie chicken dance. We talked about finding wild Missouri. Their eyes got even wider when I told them about joining a producer from Saturday Night Live to raft the Mississippi Huck-style. We drifted from the Gateway Arch to Chester, Illinois, home of Popeye. Next stop: two dozen J-school students. Hope they’ve kept the enthusiasm of fourth graders.
