    A little bit snarky, yes, but not about the good work of Ms. Martin.
    I just find Turner’s practice of only reporting a portion of the story, often inaccurately or biased, devalues the achievements of the people supposedly being honored.
    Would it have hurt the story to say “X% of those graduated from this school have gone on to colleges or universities”?

    So, in 23 years, a bit over 4 per year, out of an enrollment of how many?

    Today they fire gossip, complaints to the HOA, and lawsuits.
    I think the arrows were more civilized.

    There are three kinds of lies:

    D**m Lies,
    and
    Statistics.

    Rover was the child of Gus and Beulah Bump, who, IIRC, abandoned him when he was about 3, leaving him in the care of Slim and Clovia Skinner, who became his foster parents, and adopted him when he was about 5. Slim and Clovia already had a daughter, Gretchen, roughly the same age as Rover.

    IIRC, the Skinners found a small, dirty, ragged, hungry child, who when asked his name, said “Rover”, The Skinners took him in, fed him, cleaned him up and dressed him.
    Gus and Beulah Bump, deciding that Rover would have a better life with the Skinners, left for parts unknown.

    James Ussher (sometimes spelled Usher, 4 January 1581 – 21 March 1656), along with Sir Issac Newton and Johannes Kepler.
    A classic case of a self fulfilling prediction, they wanted it to be 4000 years between Creation and the the birth of Christ, even if they had to base their results on non-Christian sources.

    Professional skill.
    Look at a situation, piece of machinery, process, and determine everything that could go wrong, what the results would be, then figure out the best ways to prevent, control or minimize the effects, preferably with resources already on hand.

    Assuming he has a card on him that works in that ATM, just use the “Send Message to Bank” option to get a rescue.
    If not, use the security camera to attract attention.
    Last resort, try to break into the ATM, the police will show up eventually.
