Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Well Timed Compliment

By the time graduation comes around, we are all ready to see the Seniors leave.  They are done with us and we with they.

But this year, we had an especially "nice" group of seniors, and they delivered some especially nice thank yous.

That helps remind us - the faculty - that these are genuinely good, interesting young people who are just ready to leave high school, not sluggards and sloths.  And it makes the job so worthwhile.

So, if any of my students are reading this - as some claim to - you are very, very welcome.

It has been a pleasure.
