Hi all,
      Last night one of the news channels was doing a report on how inaccurate the 
mileage estimates are as they are given for new cars.  The point being made was 
that the way mileage tests are done has not changed in 20 years, and the way we 
drive has.  But of course, . . the comment was that "you could not achieve that 
kind of mileage unless you drove like a 90 year old librarian."  Sigh.  When oh 
when can we be rid of that image?  (I guess at least it's gender neutral - they 
didn't say "little old lady librarian.")

"Teachers aren't paid to love children.  Loving children is what teachers do for 
extra credit.  It's not the main assignment - but it's more important than the main 
assignment.  Extra credit is done of your own free will.  Work and love given of 
your own free will is always more joyous, better quality stuff."  Sahara Special,
