At the end of the day it is hard to type and I want to go to the Spur to meet Lib. It has also been effin’ FREEZING, never good for PD. Which is my excuse for quoting from a letter to Brett Booth of Demonpuppy instead of writing an essay.
The letter was mostly on dinosaur images and modern public schools and their avoidance of ‘strong’ evolution– something I got in Catholic schools (he explained that Creationists do not consider Catholics Christian– oh…)
Anyway, I made one old point I would still back. Which is:
“I once said [1970’s] my ideal curriculum would consist of biology, history, the classics, and how to use a chainsaw. Adaptable to region and culture but you get the drift…
“I now think I would add how to train a dog, hawk, or horse.”
