When his family would take trips in their station wagon, a young Bobby Joseph would kill time by using the panels of the car to bang out a tune which he would play in his head.

Former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint addresses an audience from across South Carolina at the Robert Mills Courthouse during The Buckley School of Public Speaking's recent biannual Disciplined Thinking Seminar. DeMint's topic concerned the centralization of big government.
