Privilege and schools

This is a simple discussion when it comes to education and a complicated one when it comes to the free and capitalist society our republic has chosen. Say, you have money and you wish to apply it to your kids’ education. What could be more American than buying your kid a mechanical pencil, a calculator, better basketball shoes, hiring a coach for swimming or a tutor to catch up in math? If you feel these are acceptable, then it is very possible — and a very short walk — to the other side of the ethical line.  

If it’s not always fair…

Soon after they master Momma and Dadda, it seems toddlers learn to say, “It’s not fair,” especially around bed time.

Those enrolled in the class did their yoga in the main barn, while the horses remained in their stables. The sights and sounds of the animals, though, lent an atmosphere of calming relaxation.

Tom Terrific, a master on the mound

I have just read that Tom Seaver, one of the greatest pitchers of all time, is retiring from public life due to dementia. This disease has taken from us a seemingly ever increasing number recently, and it is a disease that exacts a terrible toll on the patient, the family and all those who love and respect the sufferer.
