Totally a 5.

Why am I glad I wasn't alive to get on Twain's bad side? Hehe. He kicked and still kicks a $$.

He also said to never let schooling get in the way of your education.

I like his humor. But school boards surely can't be that bad.

Here's something for students in college or planning to go to college,from "Dilberts Guide to the Rest of Your Life", a book I strongly recommend. If your college degree has the word "arts" in it anywhere, you"ll have no problem getting a job, at least as long as cars and dishes get dirty.

The school board is nothing more than another set of words for your neighbors... which are just yourself in the mirror... I have seen the enemy and it is us.

Mike, Norwalk

Way too true, way too often
