On Friday morning I leave home early and meet some guys for breakfast. I have been doing this for essentially my entire career. It coincides exactly with the broadcast of the weekly Storycorps project on the radio. Most days I would rather hear the news. But every now and again these are gems. I teach in a school that does not yet celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. If you, like me, would like to somehow celebrate the day while you teach science, the story of Ronald McNair offers a great opportunity.
