"Incoherence", like when you leave words out of sentences? It's very sad to see your mental decline on display like this, Sparky.

Mentally and morally despicable is what the Tweeter-in-Chief is, so even if your statement were true, we wouldn't notice a difference.

PODS, or Parent Organized Discovery Sites Upending Public Education in Age of COVID

Posted 09-11-2020 at 08:23 PM by jbgusa
Updated 09-11-2020 at 09:07 PM by jbgusa

The development of Parent Organized Discovery Sites, or PODS to supplant online or partially-reopened schools threatens to upend the public school system, threatens to upend public education.

(link to article) Excerpt:

(Relection Campaign) Unemployment Drops to 8.4% - Fake NYT headline on Subject

Posted 09-05-2020 at 07:58 PM by jbgusa

My hikes

Posted 08-17-2020 at 08:27 AM by jbgusa

I hiked, I believe, to the 12,000 or 13,000 for level in Rocky Mountain National Park until a hailstorm (which wrecked my wife's glasses) drove us back down. This was in July 2013.

My Tryout for American History AP

Posted 08-16-2020 at 04:45 PM by jbgusa

I tried out for the History AP class. Didn't make it. I attended high school in a district that strongly encourage honors courses and AP credit, graduating in 1975. The "fireworks" though go back to my freshman year, Academic 1971-2 when A teacher we'll call "Mrs. O" was my homeroom teacher. Luck of the draw and she was my European History teach in Academic Year 1972-3.

Those "fireworks" were in November 1972. At the beginning of my freshman year.September...
