    Wish he'd come back.

    I miss him.

    Experienced Community organizer. Yeah, let's choose him to run the free world. It will be historic. What could possibly go wrong...

    I hear that teachers are perceptive. They can sense curiosity and the desire to learn. They can sense lack of ambition, lack of interest, and lack of ability. I don't know, but I would guess that a teacher would be drawn to curiosity and the desire to learn, and repelled by lack of interest, ambition, or ability.

    Perhaps if you put out some curiosity and the desire to learn, you might attract this person who you are expressing a public desire for.

    It is very easy. Post a comment that demonstrates that you read what was written, you understood what was written, you then thought about what was written, and now you either have a question about what was written, or perhaps you have your own information to volunteer.

    Or that is what my kung fu instructor told me to do. Maybe he was wrong, but he wouldn't talk to me unless I did all that.

    He told me he didn't want to waste his time.
