Hi everybody, my name is George Hede. I am a returning student attending Bemidji State University in Bemidji, Minnesota.
After a long absence due mostly to serving 20 years in the U.S. Navy as a submarine radioman, I think I made the correct
choice by returning to college. The first time around wasn't a good match for me; too many distractions and a minimal
interest in classwork, if you get my drift. Working toward a BA in English seemed logical since I've always enjoyed reading
and the persuasive power of the written word. Anything well written can influence someone, but rhetorical analysis will
hopefully bring us closer to the truth and to me, that's important. Some of my other interests include playing and watching
hockey, attending rock and roll music festivals and concerts, fishing, and simply sitting around with a few friends in front
of a fire solving the world's problems with a few beers.
