Oops! I didn't quite catch it at first. So here goes the correction "PUBLIC or private." Now, that makes sense!
On Former Coach Sentenced for Sex Crimes

This is indeed a sad story. Once a time a upon in our country, to be a coach was the closest thing to becoming a knight. When I use the title I have in mind Bear Bryant, Vince Lombardi, Tom Landry, even that all-American player Doak Walker, Southern Methodist University -- in order words, men of sterling qualities, personal or private.
There was a time when starting up a personal relationship such as this was discouraged by school administrators. This news saddens and disappoints!

This is certainly news that warms the heart! I had always expected at least one First Lady someday might make the plight of animals her priority. Alas it hasn't happened.
We just can't treat our four footed family members in such a callous manner, to ignore many of the horrendous conditions they live under, many uncaring two legged parents, for starters.
So here's to no-kill shelters and the wonderful volunteers. My donation will be in the mail shortly!

Tsk! Tsk! "...but did not take sufficient steps to warn the public and parents of scouts of the danger of molestation." Disturbing, to say the least! One would expect inviolate moral standards from a respected institution dedicated to character building and good citizenship. At this moment, I seem to recall a timeless quote:
“We never fail when we try to do our duty, we always fail when we neglect to do it.” Sir Robert Baden-Powell

This magnificent Wagnerian has been one of my favorites over the years. Although her entire repertoire is listenable, I'm most at home with "Mon coeur s'ouvre à ta voix." Perhaps I didn't take my research far enough in her repertory, but I would also be pleased to hear her sing, "Take My Mother Home," by Hall Johnson.

Would you believe that once upon a time there were abbreviated movies called soundies? You could see Dorothy Dandridge, for example, in duet with Louie "Satchmo" Armstrong, the Mills Brothers, the Dandridge Sisters, among many other acts.

This is just exciting news coming from the academic world! But does this type of program go far enough? What about junior high school, as once it was called? And what efforts will be made to pull the student of low income (mightn't the church be incorporated as support to such students off campus, of course?) background into the mix?
Not to worry! I'm sure the educators intend to cast the net as wide as possible and as early as possible to see that no student is left behind. This is indeed exciting news! Would that I could start it all over!

@Botany, the theme is serious. Yet I found myself laughing out loud at your script! But, yes, first things first?

How timely! It's been no more than a half hour ago that I watched Fareed Zakaria interview Simon Schama of Columbia University and author of "The Story of the Jews." Professor Schama addressed similar themes in a very interesting colloquy with Zakaria.
