In Bridging Differences
Deborah exchanges views with a different colleague, each for a month or two. Her current correspondent is Harry Boyte, a Minnesotan (although his roots are southern). He has always been a friend and mentor, even though we come to stuff in different ways and even disagree on and off. He is a professor and an activist, a theorist and a practitioner, with a focus on democracy—beginning a long time ago when he worked with Martin Luther King. He has written or edited ten books on the topic and founded a Center on
democracy which is now at St Augsberg College, but formerly at the University of Minnesota.
Where I’ll Be

Thank you. That gives a much more practical analysis of the topic than trying to explain why VAM is junk science. It is an explanation that can be given to anyone without having to get into a technical discussion. Sometimes the technical arguments scare people into ignoring them since they don’t understand them.
