    @ebsan: For many years, I’ve kept track of my favorite comic strips by recording their dates in a database, along with some key words relating to each strip. When I read the Calvin and Hobbes strip for the day, I’m usually reminded of one or more strips from the past, so I look up the dates, locate them on GoComics, and link to them in my posting.

    But I also search my database for key words, and I generally discover some strips that I had forgotten about, so I post some of those as well. I avoid posting any Calvin and Hobbes strips that will be coming up in the next couple of years, in order not to create “spoilers.”

    Besides, I haven’t yet read every Calvin and Hobbes strip, because I am still saving some of them to read for the very first time.

    @uniquename: Yes, attacking the schools without getting involved is like attacking the government without getting involved. We elect government leaders and we elect the school board. So, if we are simply cynical non-participants, there is a sense in which we are attacking ourselves for our own non-involvement.

    @Caldonia: I think part of the problem is that a message board like this is somewhat impersonal. We aren’t with each other and we can’t see each other.

    If someone on the street asks me for directions, I don’t begin by quizzing them as to whether they have a smart phone and whether they know how to use Google Maps. I simply try to help them by answering their question, and I’m glad to do it for them.

    For a message board, I like to see the computer used as a tool to help facilitate human interaction. It should not be an end in itself, where we make every attempt to use the computer to do everything possible before finally resorting to human interaction.

    On the other hand, all of us should be willing to learn some basic computer skills so that we don’t have to ask others the same questions over and over. Life is about balance.

    Calvin tried using a lawyer previously, but he and his legal counsel weren’t totally on the same page:

    A parent-teacher conference can be very embarrassing for a student like Calvin who is so far ahead of the class. Such a modest child.

    @paullp: Hobbes is real, but he has an imaginary friend named Calvin. That’s why it becomes confusing sometimes.
