    And he donates his entire salary to charity, but I don’t remember which one.

    A hundred years ago, graduating from 8th grade meant something because most people didn’t go beyond that and they were better educated during those 8 years. Anyone ever see an 8th grade exit exam from 100 years ago? Even college students couldn’t pass it now!

    I find all these negative comments about short men to be absolutely infuriating! My husband is 5′ 3″ (I’m 5′ 2″) and we have five grown children, three sons, two daughters. Our tallest son is 5′ 7″, the next is 5′ 6″, and the shortest is 5′ 0″. Our daughters are 5′ 5″ and 5′ 1″. We are real, we exist. And we DON’T want to be “patted on the head” or compared to Munchkins or called Lollipop kids! Kudos to Robbins for filling a niche in the market. That is nothing to make fun of.

    Joni Ernst for president. Mia Love for vice president.

    Did anyone happen to notice that now her name is Bristol Meyer?

    There is a difference between looking professional and looking like you are soliciting a date. Although I never would have dreamed of complaining to the station, what she was wearing was not appropriate for a women who wants to be viewed as a professional (unless we are talking about a professional hooker). A lot of those viewer complaints may have come from an older generation who still remembers the meaning of the word “appropriate” (and can spell it!).

    It’s a fancy word for teacher’s aide.

    In my state a substitute teacher has to be a licensed teacher (usually teacher education grads looking for a job or retired teachers). In other states they don’t have to have a license or a degree. I’d love it if more parents could be substitute teachers and see first hand how kids REALLY behave in the schools. All a substitute really needs is a course in classroom management, not course content.

    In all my years, only one celebrity death managed to finally bring tears to my eyes: Alan Rickman.

    Dano, he said he lives one house away from the school’s BOUNDARY line, the very edge of the district. In a rural school district that covers a lot of territory, that is a LONG way from the school building itself.

    Um, clearly you did not carefully read the article. She has been accepted into their Career, Independent Living & Learning Studies program, which was specially designed for students with special needs. She will be learning the adult skills she needs to live on her own and she gets a chance to try out those skills away from her family. I know parents of special needs children who are quite concerned about how their child will cope when the parents get older and eventually pass away. They will take great comfort in knowing that their child can take care of themselves some day.

    After I had my baby, I took him to class for the first few weeks after he was born. If I needed to take care of him, I went to the back of the room where there was a table or something. No one said a word to me about it.

    I watched this movie before I sent it to my adult daughters (who loved going to Girls Camp) and this movie was amazing! It’s not going to be what you expect. I especially loved the little girl with the anxiety issues and I loved the hard-core military lady with the softer side. This movie has something for everybody!

    “…during a pep rally aimed at exciting students for the state’s upcoming Standards Assessment Tests.”

    Does anyone think that needing a pep rally to excite students about the upcoming assessment tests is a STUPID THING TO HAVE TO DO???? First of all they shouldn’t even be doing these assessment tests. The only people benefiting from those tests are the testing companies getting all that money from the schools. I was subbing at a middle school during testing week and on the day of the tests they wanted all the teachers to wear the school colors to get the kids pumped up about the tests. Pep rallies in general are an annoying wasted of valuable teaching time.

    Spanish speakers are now using the @ sign at the end of a word that can end with o or a, depending on if the person is male or female. For instance, hermano is brother and hermana is sister. If you want to reference their sibling, but don’t know if it is a boy or girl, you can type herman@. But that’s for writing. I don’t think it’s pronounceable.

    Soon it’s going to be, “Did you go to college?” “Yes” “Goodbye, I’ll hire someone who actually did some work for a while.”

    I’ve got news for you, but you would be surprised how many high school Spanish teachers out there would have a real problem holding an extended conversation in Spanish. They may have had four years of high school Spanish, another four years of college Spanish and have those grammar rules and conjugations down pat and can now teach them to the next generation of high schoolers, but unless they have spent some real time in a Spanish-speaking country living among the people, their conversational skills are lacking. Two weeks back-packing in Spain doesn’t cut it. I went to summer school for 6 weeks in Mexico and that’s an improvement, but I’m not where I want to be. The best way to learn any language if you can’t go to the country: Find a TPRS language teacher. The worst way to learn a language: online. Computers aren’t real people saying things you can’t predict ahead of time.

    “Learning to speak English” is an ongoing achievement. At what point do you consider someone to be able to “speak English”? When they can buy things at a store? When they can have a discussion about bio-chemistry? When they no longer have an accent? Be patient with someone who is learning English. It is one of the most impossible languages on the planet and you should thank God every day that you grew up speaking it instead of having to learn it as an outsider. We have assimilated so much vocabulary from so many different languages that spelling and pronunciation rules are completely tangled.

    Free market capitalism is you make something or do something and you get paid for it. Then you get to keep the money you get paid. Keep in mind that the (successful) corporate CEO’s are the ones who know how to make the right decisions to keep their company growing and those companies provide jobs for people who make something or do something and get paid for it….and then they should be allowed to keep the money they are paid so they can buy someone else’s products and services so that person can get paid and keep their money so they can buy someone else’s products and services…..
