I don't want to take offense as I'd much rather take a fence (white painted picket around 1+ acres with a 4-5 Bed 3 bath home); however, I am on the school board of a public school district and am quite proud of the quality of student that graduates from here. I am just going to say, get the federal gov't out of local control and public schools will have a much better turnout throughout the country. Of course that is my own opinion*.
and no, pug I would agree that it is not really surprising and travel does broaden one's knowledge base.
*Sorry, too lazy to find someone else's opinion to cut and paste. So, it's a bit strange of my own accord.
BTW, have I told you lately that I enjoy many of your posts as they make me actually have to think.
