Back to school!Posted Wednesday, August 6, 2008, at 7:28 AM
In a recent casual conversation with Editor Eric Crump, I told him how much I loved this time of year, when summer begins to fade and school supplies reappear on store shelves. Just the sight and smell of freshly-sharpened pencils, thick Big Chief writing pads and 3-ring binders makes me want to stock up and head for the nearest classroom, I said.
I loved going to school. New books to read, more stuff to learn - who, what, when, where, why and how - I thought it was wonderful.
Eric's feelings are not so positive. In fact, he said, he hated school.
As we have time in the next few days and weeks, we're going to talk about that on this blog.
Feel free to jump in with how you feel (or felt) about going to school. Did you like it or hate it? Or were you indifferent?
