Don:Richard, you have had many passionate causes and grand visions in the years I have known you and vastly more, no doubt, before I had that good fortune.
Richard Keelor:I'm fascinated by the nature of change and its implication to health promotion and physical fitness. In my judgment, our health and physical education/fitness professions have failed miserably!
Richard Keelor:I believe one of our core problems is that we have confused scholarship with leadership.
Richard Keelor:Well, we settle for attending annual conferences and listening to entertaining and humorous speakers, like Don Ardell!
Richard Keelor:Well, it's fun for me, too, but you know as well as I do that all we're doing is telling the true believers what they already know.

Richard Keelor:I may sound a bit opinionated and sometimes cynical.
Richard Keelor: The usual ways, call, write, or e-mail as follows: Be Active America!
