The Other Gardner

We know that John is the heavyweight in fiction.

Turns out there's another Gardner, Howard, who wrote the book (no really, he did) on multiple intelligences. His work has greatly influenced teaching theories, including second language acquisition.

On a website related to Howard, I came across another John. He wasn't related to either of them, but seemed like a nice man. Anyone who references "Peanuts" in scholarly conversations is a-okay with me.

John Gardner, SIUC's very own.

Speaking of Illinois, we are the country's political laughing stock now. Ugh. And our new Governor has some things in his past that worry me. This won't end.
