Tuesday Tidbit #37: On Speaking Up and Speaking Out
If you've been following my Tuesday Tidbits column for some time, you may have read that many years ago, I was a Music Director for several radio stations.

Do I regret not saying "Hi!" to Jackson Browne? You bet. But, I will never have regrets for not saying something in the Special Education Public Forum. And, I can live with that!
