I had to smile when I saw the title Public Speaking Treasure Chest. When I was Jr. High School I joined the speech team and took part in debate and other speech contests. My parents,thiking that it would be helpful gave me a book called The Public Speakers Treasure Chest, by Herbert V. Peocnow. It was a collection of jokes and introductions that were so lame I could never use them. I enjoyed your site and feel you make some good points. There is nothing like the school of hard knocks to make you work harder.
