    This so-called "change wave" he was riding will soon break on the shores. His true colors are coming out. By the time October comes around, we will be saying "Obama who?"

    When I was a high school principal in northern Michigan, our physics teacher and his brother brought their authentic Civil War mortar to the high school property. They and the students applied physics to dropping mortar rounds onto a makeshift “outhouse” that they constructed on the day before. As I recall, they achieved a direct-hit on the second attempt from about 200 yards out. The first attempt landed with-in 8 feet. As he and his brother clarified for the students, the fact that first round did not make a "direct impact” was inconsequential at the receiving end. He clarified, that in a real-life situation, the soldiers would have been using a black powder-packed ball, with a fuse that ignites on being launched. The round would have burst about 50 feet above the ground target, and the air-blast and fragments would have taken out everything with-in at the very least 50 feet.

    I call that "applied academics".

    As I sit here very seriously contemplating leaving being a graduate professor to return to being a superintendent, I will state unequivocally, I would form and lead an "Apple Seed type club, or a CMP" type club. In addition, I would return to instructing hunter safety courses.

    Not only do firearms have a place with-in 5 miles of a school, they have a very appropriate place in school, in the way of a formal process. Wow, I do not fit the typical educator mentality, do I?!
