Partial cure for cabin fever

Cabin Fever is that ailment that forces one, eventually, to either leave the house or kill everyone too slow to escape. I opted for the former.

Poor policy
Posted: March 26, 2015

According to a recent report published by the Southern Education Foundation, students from low income families - as measured by those eligible for free or reduced lunch - now comprise the majority of all students in public school classrooms across the nation. This is alarming for a number of reasons, among which is the reality that academic achievement is closely connected to income. More than any other factor - including race, gender, or geographic location - economic security tracks most closely with academic success. Exceptions abound - and nearly everyone can name someone who has defied the odds - but the truth remains that for most students, school success correlates with higher household income. Economically secure students are more likely to have support at home; more likely to visit museums; more likely to have access to books in the home; and more likely to graduate. Solutions for addressing the growing income disparity that exists in our nation often vary according to political persuasion. Most people, however, can agree that public schools serve as the front lines in confronting the reality of this gap.

Expelled! Gone! The two bad seeds eliminated. The fraternity to which the two belonged shuttered and booted off campus, too.

Something to be proud of
Posted: March 21, 2015

The rock group The Beatles disbanded long before I was born; but thanks to a proper upbringing from my parents, I can probably sing most if not all of their songs.

The Lottery
Posted: March 19, 2015

He played the lottery periodically, but he wasn't a serious player. That day he only played because he noticed a longer line at the convenience story register than usual. The drawing that night was for $162,000,000.00, so he bought a ticket. He won and in an instant he went from being just an average hard-working guy to being a lucky multi-millionaire. He decided not to let it dramatically change his life.
