I'm Not a Midwesterner
- What a great exchange of messages! I think there's
been more postings in the past few days than in the
entire past year. I'm looking forward to the SACC
board and business meetings at the AAA where we need
to discuss the SACC web site, as we have done several
times in the past.
While I may be aging, I am not retired and as a
second-generation Angelino I am definitely not a
midwesterner. I think that Leanna's "anthropological
observations" reveal more about Ms Wolfe than about
SACC. I have found the "ecletic scattering of papers"
to be very useful and many ideas presented have found
their way into my classroom. And the field trips are
much more than an opportunity to socialize. I learn
more and experience more at the SACC meetings than
others I attend.
- Although I am no longer teaching (I spent a few years part-time at CSUN
and at East L.A. College) I still enjoy staying up to date with SACC. I
have only been to one SACC Conference. It was several years ago in
Santa Monica. Like Philip Stein, I am an Angelino (my great grand
parents came to Los Angeles just after the Civil War), but learned a lot
about my own community through that meeting in Santa Monica. I
especially enjoyed it because it was small, and individuals weren't lost
in the crowd.
I, also, am aging (I'll be 63 in a few weeks), but that's what happens
if you hang around long enough. And oh yes, some of my best friends are
