My Old Boots | New York Schools Long Schedule

An old pair of boots are comfortable and warm
like a puppy dog or an old friend. After reading this morning that
schools in several states are headed to a longer, nearly year around
schedule, I recalled an column I wrote years ago when Huntsville did
the same thing.

My perspective hasn’t changed so I decided to give the link to the old
column here. The page is a little disarrayed because I don’t use that
template any longer, but the content is there, right where I left it,
and so the point remains.

I am pleased to say I have found the right tools and templates for use
with WordPress and anticipate that in the near future I will
completely change over to that system. Right now I’m having to figure
out the php and fine tune style sheets. After the recent content is
uploaded, I’ll be able to transfer some of the older articles, like
this one from 2002, more easily as well.

    BREAKING NEWS: Skatepark Shootout Last Straw

    I guess if you escort your kid to the park, if you can avoid an argument with gunfire, you can keep an eye the kid. But, if you want to introduce you kid to the seedy underside of low level gang activity, or maybe worse, just turn ’em loose to hang out there.

    Rascally Oakwood College Students Have Protest History Other Than Ferguson

    As mentioned in this column title, Oakwood College students have a history of protest and kudos to them for responsible public action. They protested last week during rush hour traffic and pulled it off without violence or even an arrest, and still managed to shut down traffic on University Drive for several minutes.

    The New Rainbow Coalition!

    I know, sounds kinda political. Just couldn’t resist. Because, “I’m Bluebird on a telegraph line…” Instead, here’s a break from the annals of humdrum conventions and a little reverie from the entertainment world. Pop super star Elton John is making a rare appearance in Huntsville tomorrow, which prompted me to dig a couple of original […]

    Homeless Deadbeats | Homeless Guru Kevin Barbieux | WHNT-19

    Malice, hate, and greed never cease to amaze me. While I still am not a democrat, and consider Obama to be the inception of the communist era in the United States, I cannot comprehend republicans who denigrate and ridicule the unemployed as lazy, telling them to go to school, get out of their hammock, and […]

    Stupid Bad Boy Donald J Trump

    Stupid Bad Boy Donald J Trump has been working overtime. First, he threatened to call a meeting of the second amendment people to facilitate a resolve to the situation with Hillary. Then, he started talking about some sort of orderly plan based on bad Mexican people vs. ok Mexican people vs. good Mexican people to determine which ones and how many at a time will be thrown back over the new wall – once it’s built – that Mexico is going to pay for. Then he stepped on some colored toes by explaining to the black folks that in many ways the democratic dynasty of JFK hasn’t exactly been a resounding success for them. Some of the black folks didn’t agree, but they didn’t hang around too long because they were out looking for a place to eat pizza.
