And let's also think: if these kids get fine art skills, where are they going to sell their wares and performances and such? Other starving artists can't afford it.
I survived the whole day without needing to use differential equations or cite anything to do with the Byzantine Empire. Useless junk bouncing around my brain.
Let's teach a lot of things in high school, let the kids experience many different things, math, science, art, sports, etc then let them decide where they'd like to go from there. And yes, they all should have to take AND PASS core courses that cover life skills like those you mentioned.
Oh, and no pass the class, no welfare benefits, ever.posted @ Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 17:15
Being couth doesn't help either. Half of Athens has their noses stuck so high up in the air that they can't see what's happening arround them. Crime kills. And whether this was a street criminal or "the boyfriend did it" remains to be seen. Being polite about it doesn't help deter the next one.posted @ Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 15:26

It's not "exaust" from the engines as much as the weather and atmospheric conditions that allow that effect. If it were straight exhaust it'd be real smokey around airports. It's more moisture related than anything else.posted @ Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 12:03

[quote] .... taxpayers have some right to expect tangible results — i.e., employable or legitimately college-ready graduates — in return for their investment, and that students might profit from an educational experience that ties the classroom to the real world.
..... it’s possible to envision a return to the days when public schools were geared toward serving the needs of employers, at some possible peril to the broader needs of students. [/quote]
I'm confused. Which is normal. But......
So it's ok for taxpayers, and I assume you wanted to limit that to individual taxpayers, but taxpayers have the right or expectation of schools that churn out employable graduates..........
I would have thought that public schools should be readying students for the future, to be productive members of society. To that light, isn't the fact that if that goal is met, it benefits both individual taxpayers and business taxpayers? That good students become good employees and good customers? This as opposed to bad students of course.posted @ Monday, November 18, 2013 - 22:42

Well, good luck to Cine in the future. We like going there if and when the movies suit us, which isn't all the time. Like @ponsoldt: said, you can't please everyone. I'd rather see a good small screen movie instead of a blockbuster flick. And I like the atmosphere there at Cine.posted @ Monday, November 18, 2013 - 18:16

So, she has a car wreck several blocks away from this guys house, and a couple hours later goes up and bangs on his door.....at 4:40 AM.....
You go banging on people's doors at 4:40 AM, drunk or stoned, disheveled, maybe even bloodied from the wreck. G'head. Get back to us about your experience.
This guy might be wrong in what he did, but damn. He probably doesn't deserve to be persecuted either.
I really hate that these race baiters latch on to something that's not black and white and try to infuse color to taint how people see things.
There were 34 homicides in Chicago in October, 29 fatal shootings, the rest by other weapons. 98 others were shot and injured. Not one protest march. Not one 60 minute exposé. No reverend's song and dance. Why? Because that doesn't keep the hate alive.posted @ Saturday, November 16, 2013 - 08:09
I'm going wiht a drug connection. This should open up a whole other investigation and a slew of arrests in the next few weeks. Detrick should celebrate his being free as quickly as he can, because I suspect someone's going down for other crimes.posted @ Friday, November 15, 2013 - 15:07
