September 8, 2016, Prescott- I have been contributing heavily to the classroom’s instructional day- basically running the Social Studies lesson, in a pinch. Next week, I will be in training for two days, so hopefully the others will not run out of their own ideas.
Random thoughts- Has anyone read Jerzy Kosinski’s “Being There”? It is a tale of a novice running for President, and being elected. Sound familiar? My preferred candidate asked a news analyst, “What’s Aleppo?” I am disappointed. I knew what Aleppo was, and where it was, when I was 11. This candidate needs a crash course in geography. We must not be content to “all go into the garden.”
The people who thought that another candidate would be the poster child for the resurgence of ignorance, are finding out that he senses an actual chance of winning the Presidency, and is thus refining his efforts. Whether this will work for him is anyone’s guess. Many feel that a leopard does not change its spots.
I am opposed to people acting out of ignorance. When I have so lapsed, the reaction has been swift and brutal. Take the time to enlighten yourself, before, as Abraham Lincoln once said, “opening your mouth, and removing all doubt” ,(about being thought a fool).
