Thoughts on an Ending Semester from ‘America’s Next Great Pundit’ Archives

Conor Williams '05

Conor Williams ’05 has worn many hats of late. As the winner of the Washington Post‘s “America’s Next Great Pundit” contest late last year, he earned a three-month contract with The Post and is an active freelance journalist. In addition, Williams is a Ph.D. candidate in Georgetown University’s Government Department, where he is wrapping up yet another role, that of instructor. Williams reflects on the end of the semester – and weighs in on cynicism in university education – on his blog, Thought News.
