EXCUSE ME MR. VENTURA, WILL THE FINGER FOUR HOLD BE ON THE MIDTERM?
Until I surfed on into Yahoo.com, I had no idea what former pro wrestler Jesse Ventura was up to these days. It turns out the former Governor of Minnesota just spent a semester as a Fellow in the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s JFK School of Government.
Let me just summarize that for you again. The man who used to wrestle for the WWF, just spent a semester as a lecturer… at Havard… at the JFK School of Government. Yeah.
The man who once said he didn’t have time to bleed, did not technically teach a class, but led what is called a “study group”. His was named “BODY SLAMMING THE POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT: THIRD PARTY POLITICS”. The lecture outline shows he had a lot of guests, but I’m sure he was involved in every portion of the study group. Of note, he even had a former Navy SEAL come in and talk. He’s a former SEAL too, but still… pretty cool.
If you have time, check out his bio on the Harvard web site. Remember, his office hours are most flexible on Thursdays, but you can catch him too on Wednesday.
