Washington Post columnist and Fox News commentator George Will said Wednesday the real problem in the nation's capital isn't only the much-maligned political discord. "It's as broad as the republic and as deep as the Grand Canyon, and it is this: Everyone is agreed that we should have a large, generous welfare state and not pay for it," said Will, speaking in the DeSantis Family Chapel at the invitation of Palm Beach Atlantic University's LeMieux Center for Public Policy. The son of a philosophy professor and for a short time a college lecturer himself, Will said he was delighted to be back on a college campus. At PBA, he gave a public talk about serious issues the country faces, followed by a question-and-answer session with retired U.S. Sen. George LeMieux. Prior to the public lecture, he met with a small group of students as part of PBA’s President's Lyceum.

Among those on hand for the poster viewing were PBA faculty and administrators, as well as guests from the nonprofit Quantum Foundation.
