Just a few issues on my mind today and really not enough time to put them all into a paragraph so I will post only a few comments on each.
1. Why does it seem that Little League teams as young as 1st grade are being "stacked"? Some teams are loaded with the oldest, most experienced and most talented kids while other teams are left woefully deplete. And really, should parents be allowed to coach their own kids? Is there a better way to draft these teams so that each team is essentially equal and each kid has a fair opportunity to learn the game?
2. Gotta give appreciation to the airline employee who asked the gentleman to pull up his pants so that no one else on the airline had to see his underwear. Would like to see more of this and less underwear, less lowcut cleavage baring tops, and no kids in tees cut from the armpit to the waist so that we can see everything in between.
3. At what point did it become the responsibility of the parents to pay for a child's college education? My parents did not pay for mine. I applied for and received scholarships based on my grades. I also applied for my own loans and OMG... I GOT 2 JOBS TO PAY FOR MY OWN COLLEGE EDUCATION. Why should my son, who has been living on his own for a year have to submit our income information to FAFSA and why should his awards be determined by what WE make? We don't even get to claim him as a dependent.
What do you think?!
