    By Published March 28, 2015 at 5:51 pm - No Comments Perhaps, we are ready. Studies show learning cannot be forced. You can’t make a five-year old learn to read when he’d rather be outside chasing butterflies. Unfortunately, you can’t force a nation to learn when it isn’t ready to either. […]

    By Published March 26, 2015 at 3:51 pm - No Comments I’d bought a discounted round-trip Greyhound ticket to Salt Lake, my jumping-off point.  I looked through the bus window and saw a hobo emerging from the UP yards, so I quickly ran him down and solicited some advice. Within the half […]
