    Well, it does spring from the ground! (sorry about the pun :-o)

    Dana is really being apolitical here-she could have shown a day after a presidential headline announcing who the winner was. (I won’t give examples as I think everyone had one immediately pop into their head)

    Meh, wait until you’re older, I don’t remember this one and besides, it’s a good one too. Have you never re-read a favorite book or re-watched a favorite movie.

    Probably a whiter shade of pale.

    Ranks right up there with “Does this dress make my butt look big?”

    Shouldn’t have to define properly dressed-it means clean and appropriate-; i.e. no cut-off or torn jeans, no tee-shirts with rude or inappropriate logos, hair combed, and at least a reasonable amount of personal hygiene. I wouldn’t expect an applicant for a factory job to show up in a suit and tie, nor would I expect someone applying for a sales job to wear an outfit in questionable taste. Personal statements should come from your actions, not your appearance.

    Perhaps there wouldn’t be such a demand for “my rights” if you had to fulfill the obligations associated with those rights. E.g. giving to the community, being an asset rather than a burden. Wonder how many people would take assistance if there was some sort of “pay back” or quid pro quo attached? For example-to get unemployment benefits you need to show up, on time, properly dressed, and able to function (sober) five days a week for eight hours a day for job training.

    Are they mutually exclusive? I never underestimate the power of stupidity. As Einstein is purported to have said: “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. I’m not too sure about the universe.”

    typo in second to last line-the word should be without after classroom and before happy.

    Agreed-the teacher’s are a lot like middle management, catching from above and below. Many school boards focus on how well their district schools perform on standardized tests (bragging rights) and interfere with the effective teachers (and there are many) by pressuring them to “teach to the test”. On the other side they are hounded by parents when they give the child the grade they earned, not the grade the parents think they deserve. You couldn’t pay me enough to become a teacher and I probably wouldn’t last a day because I would be constantly offending either the powers that be or the parents who expect the teachers to make up for the 5-6 years of parental neglect preceding the school years. I am sorry but plunking little Johnny or Jane in front of the boob tube, no matter how “educational” the content may be can never substitute for one on one parental attention. The focus on electronic “teaching aids” only ensures that the kids will be stultified by actually having someone tell them something while standing still at the front of a classroom with happy tunes, dancing animals, and constant praise about what a good learner the child is.
