The Bookshelf: "How the World Got Better" by Greg Flint

Illustration_sm_1.jpg

What if, right about now, every human soul were to answer

One little question it seems we’ve never considered:

How would we like this world to be?

Please, just imagine it, bravely and from the heart…

Speak it, write it, sign it, and share it…

What if we listen to each other, all the world around,

Starting with the kids?

What if, on what’s important, we find agreement enough to

Finally believe our world can get better? So we act like it,

And so it does? …What if?

-Greg Flint

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
