    Probably to have a short weep . . .

    Considering the climate of February, I think it was an excellent idea to make February a short month.

    And I remember when my first grade teacher sat at the lunch tables with her students and taught us how to hold our utensils and my principle stopped me in the hall to tell me happy birthday. Those were great days. The janitor was cool too.

    Night-gaunt from yesterday. No kidding. Thomas Hobbes, The Leviathan, 1651. Rousseau to the contrary means that he, Rousseau, held the contrary opinion. He thought in a state of nature everything was just ducky. He was wrong.

    One summer when I was in college, my friend Ted and I worked on a crew back in our hometown, re-paving streets. Residents often came out to watch, usually kids and seniors. On one particular street, we saw among the onlookers the janitor from our grade school, now long retired. We greeted him warmly. He remembered us, we remembered him. The smile on his face I will never forget. How nice is that, that he felt so good knowing that we liked him as much as he liked us?

    I would hate to go back to 10 months of the pre Caesar days.

    I was in elementary school in the second half of the ‘50s, and our janitor was scary. Being a child at the time, I didn’t know who paid him, but I do know and well remember how we kids avoided doing anything to upset Rudy. In fact, we avoided Rudy, period. He had no patience and did not like anything he did to be messed up!

    What? It’s already past 9 AM Pacific Time and Mr. @Nabuqudurizhur (sp?) still hasn’t ranted about how lousy school teachers are?

    In “The Breakfast Club,” the wisest character was the janitor.

    Not the painter, the philosopher. He wasn’t married.

    Although he didn’t marry, he did force his mistress to surrender their children to a home. He was known for idealizing the “natural life” and primitive societies.

    I lived next door to one. His son now has a bicycle shop and a hot-looking wife.

    Another thing: why does Caulfield never interact with the other children (apart from putting on a show for them when he messes with Mrs. Olsen)? What’s up with that? If they’ve all ostracized him for being such a jerk, I get that; he’s insufferable. But if that’s the case, then I feel sorry for him. A little.
