SELF-INDULGENT EDITORIAL

One of the joys I get from posting the Grudge every day is seeing which threads generate the most comments.

Clearly,Monday’s was about Obama’s pitiful writing skills.It got me thinking of my halcyon days in high school.

When I received my class schedule before beginning my junior year(1966-67) I had been one of 22 students from a class of almost 400 for an Honors English course.The teacher was a woman named Gladys M. Ford.Everybody has one teacher who impacted their life to some extent.For me,it was Mrs.Ford.

The first day she laid out her philosophy. “You are in an honors class for a reason.I expect excellence and will accept nothing less.” She also had a sign on her desk:Question Everything.

Some of the kids disliked her to various degrees because they had always just skated through. Woe be unto anyone who came to class unprepared.We went through everything from Beowulf to Mad Magazine.(See if you can guess who suggested that material.)Anytime you wrote a report you better be prepared to defend it.

When you asked a question,she would steer you toward finding an answer on your own instead of just telling you.She felt you would retain what you learned better that way.I always considered myself a wordsmith,but against her I never stood a chance.Ironically,the best piece she claimed I wrote was when we had to write a satire and I chose to retell Paul Revere’s ride from his horse’s perspective.

In August of 1967,just before senior year,Mrs.Ford suffered a massive heart attack and passed away.Nearly her whole class attended her funeral,which was a testament to her dedication to what she called: ‘her children.’ A portrait of her still hangs in the Rockford Auburn foyer outside the theater stage.

She could not have survived in today’s educational system.Her joy was seeing a student’s face light up when they accomplished things they never thought possible.

If Barack H. Obama had been in Mrs. Ford’s class and handed in this rubbish she would have said: “If abusing the English language were a crime you,sir,would be a felon.”

How different things were before the teachers unionized and suborned childrens’ education to their own selfish interests.

I fear the like of Gladys M. Ford will never be seen again,and we as a nation are poorer for it.

Linked from Webshots

To see this full size, go to:

Chrissy’s Site Bites: http://news.webshots.com/photo/2993452580056011884RXiMox

If it’s still not big enough to read, click on “Full Size” in the menu panel at the right.

==================

The clever Mafia Rose figured out how to link to Webshots.  It’s not even difficult and it avoids us jam packing our WordPress storage area with my graphics.

Unfortunately, I can’t like it. I used my usual method below for comparison’s sake.

  1. Clicking on the image above does nothing. To embiggen, you have to read the instructions, click on the URL, wait for Webshots to open and then find and click on the “Full Size” option. To embiggen here, you just click on the picture and it opens right up.
  2. Webshots “crunches” (degrades) what I upload more than WordPress does, so while the full size at Webshots is legible, it’s grainier than the full size uploaded here.
  3. For people who are copying them for printing, I’d prefer they have access to the full file, which they won’t if it’s only at Webshots.

I prefer we deal with storage by buying more when I fill it up, which at the rate I’m producing, is apparently going to happen 3 or 4 years from now.

Terrorism reality check

Click graphics to embiggen for easier reading.

United States Law Code defines terrorism as premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents. Violence is behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage or kill someone or something.

This one qualifies.

Source: http://articles.cnn.com/2003-01-31/justice/reid.transcript_1_court-sentences-allah-court-hearing?_s=PM:LAW

This one does not. It was premeditated and politically motivated, but did not involve a group or clandestine agent. And since the intent was to insult, not do lasting harm or damage, I don’t think it rises anywhere near the level of “violence” that terrorism demands.

The court qualified it as an “assault”, but the light sentence clearly suggests they agreed with me that it was more about shoe-throwing than shoe-hitting.  The most this jerk could’ve done was leave a bruise and, since he threw in the open, face on, one could easily expect Bush’s reflexes to at least get his hands up in time to protect his eyes and nose.
