The Kids Are Back
First, it's too early to go back to school. All this talk of not having a summer vacation... whatever. It's a good thing. Summer vacation is.
Second, they fill the town, the streets, the parking spaces, campus... There they are, with there mamas and their daddies, mostly their mamas, rolling big suitcase rollers down the sidewalks toward the dorms, piled with crap.
It's like playing house. I just can't help but wonder if kids are just too sheltered any more. Do they have any idea? For instance, do they know that in this country, the good old US of A, there are 73 million people who go hungry every day, who go to a soup kitchen line, straight from work even, because their jobs don't pay enough? And that's only the hungry people we can count.
That's just crazy. But, that's another story. And speaking of money, I should have been fine tuning this research budget at least an hour and a half ago. So, that's all for today, folks.
I think it's enough, eh?
