A FEW THOUGHTS ABOUT ANNAPOLIS H.S. BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT

CP always attends the requisite Back to School Nights and this was the first at a high school.

Notes:
A big crowd!

Positive!

Principal Don Lilley needs to polish his public speaking skills. Please, energize and inspire me!

Why should I care about the neo-fascist NJROTC Program? (the portly guy in the khakis kept reminding us in his speech to "nevermind this and nevermind that..."???? The NJROTC students spread throughout the halls have more ribbons, garlands, epaulettes and medals hanging from their lapels, shoulders and heads than Sergeant York or the recently deceased Admiral Fluckey.

I wish they would have made sure we all had maps instead of just leaving them on a table where they could not be found.

Why do we have portable classrooms? How come they could not put numbers on them?

TEACHERS-- very positive! Mainly young and energetic. Very impressed. Met one teacher in the hall who was so positive she kept referring to The New Annapolis High. One concern--teachers who say the purpose of a class is for the students to pass those standardized tests. Okay, this is not the purpose of an education. In fact, it often detracts from an education. Let's get that out of the way......(all that ridiculous No Child's Left Behind....what's wrong with their Right Behinds?)

GOOD things are happening in our schools. Please send your children to them and support them (the schools and teachers, not the overpaid, meeting-attending educrats at Riva Road)

As a progressive Democrat and a veteran, I'm quite glad you never filled an elected office with a (D) behind your name since you think NJROTC is "neo-fascist." You embarrass me.

Dear Mr. or Ms. Anonymous:

Your comment was received within minutes of this post. (!) You have a NAVY address attached to a server in Pensacola. Why do whiney, nasty folks like you feel the need to go out of their way to personally attack bloggers who happen to write something they don't like? What kind of mentality compels you to be so nasty and mean-spirited? And if you have something to say, why not attach your name?

I labeled NJROTC as being a neo-fascist group. You disagree. Okay, so write a responsible reply and it might get published. But for gosh sakes--sign it! Of what are you so afraid?

For the record, CP is a US Merchant Marine Officer and is the son of a WW2 era Seabee non-comm. CP has read widely about US Naval history, particularly WW2 in the Pacific and has many current and former Navy folks as friends.
