Star Humor Columnist to Speak on Campus Fridayby Howard W. Hewitt • February 23, 2005
Indianapolis Star columnist Lori Borgman will speak at 12:15 p.m. Friday in Center Hall 216.
Borgman is known for her weekly humor column about family life. Her talk is titled "Why Honey Can’t Find the Mustard." The talk is free and sponsored by The Wabash Commentary.
Borgman is a family life columnist syndicated throughout the United States and Canada by Knight-Ridder Tribune News Service. Her Indianapolis column runs on Sundays.
Lori’s column addresses topics ranging from sibling rivalry to the middle school peculiarity of boys and girls "going out" (even though nobody ever goes anywhere), and the hazards of college dorm life, including keeping a Madagascar hissing cockroach as a pet.
Sometimes she even touches on serious subjects like the importance of faith and dangers of doing taxes with your husband.
She has brought her wit and wisdom to a wide variety of audiences and conventions. Her appearance is part of The Commentary’s Man Week activities.
