Chris Hopkins is the BEST Speaker I have ever heard! You will litterally walk out with a completely different outlook on life! Absolutely amazing. Mr Hopkins will probibly be one of the top speakers in the world in a matter of a year or two. Chris is speaking at Saint Isidore's on January 17th, I believe this is an open speech.

The Measure D folks were not aware of his ride on November 5...nor of his support for Measure D. And there's no speaking event scheduled at the church next month. Very odd article...

Mr Hopkins is the same guy that rode his unicycle 80-90 miles a few years back and delivered a calculator to the (Governator), to try to gain support for education on a freeking unicycle. I followed him up the mountain, while he juggled up and down this mountain. This was totally crazy! Chris was mainly supporting Prop 30 on this trip up the mountain. The fact that he also supported Measure "D," would be expected! How could you possibly want to say anything bad about a guy like this, I have no idea! I am a teacher, and I can tell you that Mr. Hopkins likes teachers and we like him! Thank you Mr. Hopkins for your consistant support of education!
