- What the heck with all the studies, and discussion, why
not just buy smaller books? Books are too heavy =
books are too big. What's the problem? BUY SMALLER
BOOKS. What's next, a BackPack County Representative in
the state government, so the voice of the book-carrying
community can be heard?? And the report says that the
same study was done before and no action was taken in 1999,
isn't that what should be investigated?? The "no action" part?
Oh, and by the way, in the report, that second sentence (below)
isn't a complete sentence.
"The goal of this report is not to provide the
same recommendations that have been proposed
over the past several years which hinge on utilizing
the backpack correctly, and limiting the weight
of the books that are being transported. But rather,
to stimulate conversation within the Backpack Task Force
Committee that will lead to more creative.."

From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE...
With trembling hands and sweaty upper lips, the Very Important People
furiously tap out their Very Important Headline: Is America Ready For
A Female President? Do we have an emergency female president
preparedness kit? Are we stocked up on batteries and potable water
and canned soup? And where are those damn flares??
Laughing off this emerging crisis (crisis I tell you!!) are people
like comedienne Elayne Boosler, who try to "bamboosle" us into
thinking the Republic will survive this alternative-gender onslaught:
In 2007, a record 13 countries have currently serving, elected female
Presidents or Prime Ministers; Ireland, New Zealand, Latvia, Finland,
The Philippines, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Iberia, Chile, Jamaica,
South Korea, Switzerland, and a Chancellor in Germany. None have
renowned ballet companies, or have ever asked neighboring countries
if their maps make them look fat. All play some kick-ass soccer. [...]
When people write, "Is America ready for a female president?" they
need to know how insulting that is to women. These are the doubt
planters. Tell 'em to go to hell. They're not asking, they're
undermining. If you want to make someone feel unwell, don't say, "You
look terrible", because he'll immediately bounce back with, "I feel
fine!" But if you ASK, if you say, "Do you feel all right?" the doubt
sets right in. "Why? Why do you ask? What's wrong?" That's what
they're doing. "Is America READY for a woman president?" "Why? What's
going to happen??"
Is America ready? The rest of the world probably reads that and
shakes its head in bemusement, or incredulity, plain confusion, or
maybe even sadness. Is America ready for sliced bread, covered
wagons, indoor plumbing, math, the wheel, air travel, computers? Duh.
You're so cute.
Indoor plumbing? Never! Cheers and Jeers starts in There's
