In one area of Boston we have police patrolling the halls every day. The kids have to go through a metal detector and packpacks are searched. Teachers get hazardous pay. So glad no one in my family has been assigned to that area for the busing quota.

The cow's noseprint is as individual to the animal as fingerprints are to humans. Dogs too.

We had a cat named Dumbo. My son was three when we got the cat and thought he looked like the elephant with big ears. That was a great cat.
