Stonehenge is on the border of stone construction and it has always attracted attention with the having to bring the building materials from a far region; it also, nearby, has the remnants of a wood henge so it is a nice blend of the two styles.
    Excellent, thank you, that does make sense.

    On the other hand it would be time consuming as hell. And I know and get along with the guy I'd be running against, even if I think he's doing a pretty lousy job. His wife and my wife are friends. So there's that to consider.

    So the family and I are going to sit down and discuss it this weekend and decide.
    I wish you the best of luck.

    I don't want to discourage you from a noble calling, but be aware of what you're getting into. Education is so fucked up right now that I don't think anyone can make a significant change. As long as schools are under-funded and required to administer multiple standardized tests, morale and performance will remain low. So unless you have access to a money tree and have the political chutzpah to reverse NCLB, it's a pretty hopeless cause.

    Damn. I used to be such an optimist too.

    off to conduct a story time for pre-schoolers.
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    I know that it's a quagmire. But our District seems to be going out of its way to go the wrong direction. Two years ago the legislature rammed through a bill that was a wholesale change in pretty much every way that education was to work in the state with absolutely no testimony and no input from teachers, patrons...pretty much anyway. It was spearheaded by the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and was instantly controversial. We forced the whole thing to be put on a ballot for approval as three initiatives and all three went down in flames by pretty wide majorities. Our school board then went back to the legislature and asked them to re-adopt the exact same measures that had been voted down. And they had all been defeated in our county. They simply seem to be out of touch and they are definitely unpopular with the current teachers.

    Still haven't decided...but in the back of my mind I'm thinking that this cannot hurt me when the next judgeship opens up locally as well.

    I'm not sure I fully understand, but if there's a local issue that you can make a difference on, then go for it.

    I did that once. The school wouldn't let the students out to watch a very important home school football game, so we spread the word to come out back when the fire alarm went off, and I fucking did it. The team got a few cheers for a few minutes. It felt good.

    I was VERY disappointed by your explanation of this post, but I'm still pretty sure your masseuse deserves a blow job.
