I used to tutor at a community college. Whenever I had a student come to me for help and then complain that their class or their homework was "too hard", I would just tell them, "If it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be school." Also, overheard in my the historical geology course a friend of mine is taking, after the class was assigned to find a newspaper article that had to do with geology and write a one-page paper about it, the response of one of the students in class was that the assignment was "too much work." So, you know, I understand completely the point of view that students who aren't willing to even put forth the effort to do their homework, probably aren't going to be willing to put forth the effort it takes to get and keep a good job that pays enough to, oh, live on. Becuase you can't live on minimum wage, no matter what some of the politicians say. I've been there, and I know. Elaine

I really like that, Wil. Scary thing, neighbors, and you show that well here. I will confess that I often wonder what's happening behind the drapes as I pass by houses in my neighborhood. Elaine
