And yet, you will pass them along, giving them the impression that it is okay, too.

Ouch.

My sister claims they are still teaching how to read it, but it isn't reinforced teaching and there are young adults out there who CANNOT read cursive. They have made, essentially, illiterate. All in the name of "ease" but isn't that always the case.

It is a tough topic. It should rather be easier to herd cats. A passing grade is anything above a 60 on a 100 point scale. But of course the ease always comes in whilst picking the low hanging fruit.

Such a nice god these westboro baptists have. I'm glad their god isn't mine.  >:(

On another note, I had an email from some journalists, asking me for an interview for one of the biggest national newspapers (in my country, not the US!). I hate that, and would just love to say no, but am not sure if that would be a very good idea. I think I need a double dose of my Fukitol tonight.  :-\

These people are sick and their thinking is so very twisted.

I hope the bikers come out and stop them once again.

Some people cry out for the opportune pairing of a dark alleyway and a length of lead pipe wrapped with fingerprint resistant tape.  Even democracy has limits of good taste.

I will be rather surprised if the bikers 'rolling roadblock' doesn't appear on the day.

I would love to see Obama politely ask the IRS to give some loving, personal, and intimate attention to the Westboro church and all her leading Phelps and family members. I think it would be beneficial for all of us to have some caring individuals paying close attention to these "people" and I use that world loosely.

Bikers, citizens, students, all should form a wall. That has been working. Especially if they get between them and the TV cameras.

There are an awful lot of f*ed up people in this country, but I do believe they take it to new heights.

grrrrr. I'm pissed off because I just started working on a project and realized that the textbooks I need are at work. That means I'm going to have to drive in there. I'm not going today. I just got home. I guess after my doctor appt on Wednesday, I'll have to stop by there and finish up.  >:(

Get yourself a real razor, or even a cut-throat.  Then you might treat it with respect.
