Hey, that’s just a couple of miles from me. The lockdowns were a big concern of mine last year when my son was in ps kindergarten. After the Virginia Tech shootings, the district felt they had to move their lockdown planning along faster. In any case, I was very worried about what my son would experience if his school was chosen to be the one where they simulated an intruder coming into the school and the swat team coming, etc. Luckily, his school wasn’t chosen, but he still had to practice the safety drills. But I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that any more, especially since lockdowns apparently take place if parents need to use the restroom. 😎

Bush’s legacy = the culture of fear.

I always thought the phrase was dirty stinking hippie, but I’ll take it.

The change in attitude is so sad. I’m sitting here listening to a Hap Palmer CD with my infant grandson, a CD of a ‘vinyl, that I originally saw in my children’s Kindergarten classroom and subsequently checked out of the library. This music from ‘long ago’ is so gentle and happy.

I don’t even have any words for a comparison between ‘then’ and ‘now,’ even though the music I’m listening to was composed in the middle of the turbulent 60s.

I suppose I should be grateful I can take an auditory vacation.
