Case in Point. I failed a sixth grade spelling test because I
misspelled "does". My mother, at the time, used a laundry detergent
brand named DUZ.


You failed a spelling test by misspelling one word?

What a strict school!

"religious monument."

Pretty appropriate if you worship money....

And where, pray tell, are you going to find enough people who use the

They did when Scout and I were kids. English Literature was the
standard for the college prep crowd for first semester senior English
and second semester was World Literature. Freshman year we read and
discussed "Romeo and Juliet", read Richard Llewellyn's book _How Green
Was My Valley_, and _Bleak House_ (Dickens, of course). In Sophomore
year we read "Julius Caesar", _A Tale of Two Cities_, and "Canterbury
Tales" (modern version, but we took a stab at the Chaucerian English
for kicks). In Junior year we studied American Literature exclusively
and read "The Grapes of Wrath", _Silas Marner_, "Uncle Tom's Cabin",
the sermons of Cotton Mather, Henry James' _A Turn of the Screw_,_The
Great Gatsby_, _A Separate Peace_, and of course , Salinger. Senior
year out with "The Merry Wives of Windsor", progressed on to "Taming
of the Shrew" then on to a study of English poetry other than
Shakespeare, some short stories by Somerset Maugham, and independent
reading (I read _Wuthering Heights_) Nowadays, I doubt if they even
read a third of that list unless the kids are lucky enough to have
parents who have inculcated reading as a pleasurable pastime.... --

In some US towns close to the border Hispanics who have managed
to get into office have changed the "official" language in the local =
schools to
Spanish. =20

Haate to tell you this, but Spanish was here and established long before =
English was.

we now have food lines --

If you're 48 then you should know that we have always had food lines. =
They have never gone away. We have also had homeless, recessions, =
depessions, and eras of high bankruptcy. BTW, most bankruptcies are not =
business related but personal. They stem from people spending money =
they do not have and then asking the courts to erase it. Guess who =
takes that kick in the butt? You seem very naive.
