America’s CEO

 

I’ve been reading a lot lately about people who are not going to vote or who are going to vote specifically for someone other than the two main nominees for US President. That is where this all comes from…

The APSU Music DepartmentClarksville, TN – On a warm afternoon last spring, just as the bradford pear trees started blossoming around Clarksville, Austin Peay State University professor of music Dr. David Steinquest sat in his office, dreaming about the dark and gloomy month of October.
