This week is American Education Week, so, as an antique teacher, I feel compelled to comment on the subject, based on my half century of intimate involvement in public education.

As a child of World War II, born in 1944, I have a special interest in that era.

It’s pretty common for us old geezers to look askance at the younger generations.

 

It’s been interesting — well, maybe that’s not quite the right word — to read about the protests people have raised over the current government shutdown.

I once read about a mother who found herself breaking up a fight between her sons.

One summer afternoon back in 1988, I stepped out into the back yard of my Greybull home and looked up into a dark gray sky.

Once upon a time, it was a big event in California every spring when huge flocks of swallows returned from their winter home to the old mission at San Juan Capistrano.

Watching the political scene is always good for a few laughs.

Not that politics isn’t a serious business. Politicians can, and often do, cause a great deal of mischief, and not a few disasters.
