I’m not saying that I don’t like having a high capacity washer and dryer in my house. Don’t think for a second that I’d prefer to go down to the creek with a paddle and a bar of lye soap I made myself to beat my clothes against a rock and then wring them out […]
I think as a public service, I am going to use this space to review a little bit of basic math: the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Let me back up a minute and tell you why I am saying this. It seems to me that every single time I find […]
I went to 6th grade orientation this morning. My actual 6th grader didn’t go and wasn’t oriented because she is still at camp. I admit that I did a pretty poor job of orienting myself, under the theory that I am not going to have to be able to find the classes, nor will I […]

Hearsay is one of those legalese words that most people have heard and have a general understanding of what it means. It isn’t simple, however, and there are a ton of exceptions, and exceptions to the exceptions.
There are very few things in America which are not regulated to some degree. When I speak at elementary and middle schools, I always bring the volume of the Georgia code which has the laws about bicycles, and the children are always stunned by the pages and pages of laws.
The school year has started, and children have begun going to their public schools, private schools, or started their home school curriculum.
