I really wish I could listen to more of this, but I’m totally put off by the background noise.

It came to question time and he answered all questions simply and effortlessly. The teachers then asked questions and one tried to impress by couching everything in scientific terms. Walton asked him to simplify his question but he still used technical terms. Walton turned to us all and said if anyone real... more
