    A couple of interesting (to me, anyway) articles in the Wilmington News-Journal. The first is kind of a whiney story about how social studies doesn’t get respect (read, “money”) and how important it is (read, “needs more money”).

    The second story focuses on the Ommelanden gun range, a state-run hunter and shooting education facility. It’s located a few miles south of my home in New Castle in what used to be a fairly isolated area. In the last few years, homes have sprung up all around the range. Now, the neighbors are complaining about the noise. Geez! What’d they expect? Do they want the cops (who use this facility for training) to whisper “Bang! Bang!” as they pretend to shoot at targets?
