I would like to meet this man.

This is Gerald Smith. Mr. Smith teaches Rural Religion at the University of the South, Sewanee.

He claims not to have "swapped a piece of paper with students for more than ten years" after committing in 1994 to maintain a paperless classroom. He is clearly a fine Urban Land Scout. Let us all send him Valentine's Day cards inviting him to visit Knoxville.

UPDATE: I'd originally linked to this photo of Mr. Smith by the Tennessean's photographer, Larry McCormack (with very clear credit to Mr. McCormack). That link has since ceased to work...and I assume the Tennessean saw my re-posting of it as a violation of their copyright.
