In this satirical take on the goings on in the halls of academia, Christian private-college style, Ricapito tells the story of Bert Russo, a naive professor who learns the hard way that making waves (especially political ones) can lead to dire consequences. In the end, having exposed the hypocrisy and two-faced actions of his colleagues and having lost both his wife and job, Bert is finally at peace with himself.
I raced up the stairs. It was important to be on time -- something my father had drummed into me from an early age. I cursed the freeway. There had been a wreck, and it had been bumper to bumper for miles. I asked directions for the administrative building. I was pointed towards an edifice that had a tower with a large red ball on top, and “In Pursuit of Truth” written over the front door.
