So ... I’m standing in line at a quick mart, with four, either junior high or high school girls, milling around ahead of me. One of the girls is buying a fountain drink, and says to the others, “Hey, how much is 14 and 50?” Three blank looks ... I say, “64.” “Oh, cool, thanks,” is the response. HUH?
To you underpaid, overworked educators ... I’m a senior citizen. I’m good. THIS is YOUR legacy. Better hope for a MUCH brighter future, DUDE!
