    Dear Bliss: A few years ago you came to my class at the University of Utah and spoke about the history, goals, and activities of the John Birch Society. Would you be able to speak to this semester’s class on November 19 at 7:15 for approximately 30 minutes with an additional ten minutes for questions and answers?
