It seems you have reinforced some negative stereotypes about Fessenden while trying to defend the community. It is fortunate that you have family in Fessenden and have a positive connection to the community. It also appears your family must be from the "country club" class. But not eveyone has the experience you have been privileged to enjoy. In additon to adults who left, there are some young people who have left the community and don't even return to visit their parents as their early experiences in the school and community was painful. The reality is that Fessenden is a dying community because it is a "closed" community.

Our school has provided a laptop for every student grades 3-12... So don't even try to say we "aren't accepting innovation" or that we are so far behind the rest of the world. We are right up there with you, if not ahead of you. That's the most hilarious thing I've read on this forum in a while. I can't believe you typed that.
Wow, you're school provides laptops to your kids. That shouldn't be too hard, considering ND has less than 800,000 people. So only a fraction of the population are kids between that age, thus, the schools can afford to pay the prices.

You're schools provide laptops but you didn't provide the skills to use them. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the star pupil in the entire freakin' town of ND.

Uh, no.

"The pot" (for cooking) and "the kettle" (for boiling water) sit on the stove over the fire and become black from the flames.


or

The phrase "Pot calling the kettle black" is an idiom, used to accuse another speaker of hypocrisy, in that the speaker disparages the subject for a fault or negative behavior that could equally be applied to him or her, though there is an alternative interpretation. In former times cast iron pots and kettles were quickly blackened from the soot of the fire. The pot would then be hypocritical to insult the kettle's colour, since both are black with soot.

Now jr - get to work on those laptop skills!

This thread should be deleted... It's to the point that it's not even about Fessenden anymore.

It seems that this Thread has strayed big time from the original post back in 2007.
Per request I will close it as it is getting so Off Topic.
North Dakota seems like such a beautiful and interesting State, I'm sure there are more interesting topics to discuss
