There is just too damned much of this going on. Between this crap and gun violence in schools . . . .  As someone who's been traumatized by guns several times, it does nasty things to my head.

1. At age 19, I was working at a drugstore, at the cigarette counter in the front, and out of sight of the manager. I was held up at gunpoint. (1974)

2. When I was pregnant, my boss committed suicide at work. Luckily, I was out having a sonogram done (it was first thing in the morning), but there was a lot of other stuff going on in my life at the time, and that put me into pre-term labor. (1986)

3. I was trapped in a high-rise at work downtown when a gunman went into one of the other offices and killed 8 people. We were trapped for 5 hours, not knowing whether he had an accomplish running around. The SWAT team crept in and got us, although that, by itself, nearly gave us coronaries. (1993)

I experience some sort of PTSD when stuff like this happens; it brings it all back.

Who needs bombs?  Who needs guns?  In the SF Chron yesterday, there was a story about a 7 y/o in Oakland who had his teeth broken and skull fractured at school Monday by 5th grade "bullies".  This elementary school has a history of violence.  Last year, they suspended 97 out of 344 students for violence (some of which did involve weapons).
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/04/25/MNKS10BAQV.DTL&hw=piedmont&sn=001&sc=1000 - http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/04/25/MNKS10BAQV.DTL&hw=piedmont&sn=001&sc=1000
 
When I googled this story, I came across an article in the NY Times from a year ago which talked about the violence in this school (which is located in a nice area of Oakland, but kids are bussed in).  In all their infinite wisdom, the school decided that "Tibetan singing bowls" might help.  The article actually actually took this crap seriously. 
 
Excerpt:
OAKLAND, Calif., June 12 — The lesson began with the striking of a Tibetan singing bowl to induce mindful awareness.  With the sound of their new school bell, the fifth graders at Piedmont Avenue Elementary School here closed their eyes and focused on their breathing, as they tried to imagine “loving kindness” on the playground.

"Kum-bay-ah...."

I know. I was "bowled" over by the percentage of kids (97 out of 344 students?!) who were suspended for violence. And another teacher commented that they don't always suspend the kids because they have to "keep their numbers down."  There is a lot of that kind of stuff going on in the schools (keeping the numbers down) as far as drop-outs, etc. I'm trying so hard not to feel hopeless, but lately I just feel like the fabric of society is unraveling at a dizzying speed.

Friend of mine who teaches in the SFUSD says that the rougher schools in SF don't suspend their students because an individual school's funding in the SFUSD is dependent upon the attendance rate of that school's students.  A "suspension" is considered an absence.  It actually behooves the school to look the other way when a student commits a suspendable offense.

You're right, Thor.  I am just thankful that my son was able to go to the School of the Arts (vocalist). It was very small and gay-friendly. And I'm glad as hell he's out of the SFUSD, too.

For anyone thinking about making a career change...some 'hints' from CAREERBUILDER, today. This simply is some of my favorite reading material...
(...in all my years of hiring and, well...er, the opposite side of that, I've NEVER had a candidate pull ANY of these silly stunts...and, for those that are probably thinking, "...but - well, Pa - What about YOU?" - no, I haven't even pulled any of these)
 
First - Good Reference Page for ANYONE looking: http://money.cnn.com/2008/05/07/news/economy/best.websites.fortune/index.htm - http://money.cnn.com/2008/05/07/news/economy/best.websites.fortune/index.htm

(excerpt from the link, above)
 
Unfortunately, many job seekers are not only ignoring these tips, they're making mistakes that leave unforgettable impressions for all the wrong reasons. Here are 10 real-life examples from this year's survey:

• Candidate answered cell phone and asked the interviewer to leave her own office because it was a "private" conversation.Confused

• Applicant told the interviewer he wouldn't be able to stay with the job long because he thought he might get an inheritance if his uncle died - and his uncle wasn't "looking too good."LOL

• The job seeker asked the interviewer for a ride home after the interview.Embarrassed

• The applicant smelled his armpits on the way to the interview room.Dead

• Candidate said she could not provide a writing sample because all of her writing had been for the CIA and it was "classified."

• Candidate told the interviewer he was fired for beating up his last boss.Ouch

• When the applicant was offered food before the interview, he declined saying he didn't want to line his stomach with grease before going out drinking.

 (no, no, no! THAT WASN'T ME!!!)

• An applicant said she was a "people person" not a "numbers person" -- in her interview for an accounting position.Star

During a phone interview the candidate flushed the toilet while talking to hiring manager.DeadShocked

The Swedish government has told a couple that they may not name their daughter Elvis.  Apparently, the government there reviews baby names and decides which ones may or may not be used.  In this case, the government decided the name is inappropriate for a girl.
 
http://www.thelocal.se/12214/20080604/ - http://www.thelocal.se/12214/20080604/
 
Also, in Sweden, it is illegal to name your child anything that sounds like a last name.  That is, Madisons, Conners, and Tylers are illegal.  Nor can one name their kid the name of a place.  Also, if a Spanish woman marries a Swedish man, and they combine their names (example Torres-Jensen), their kids cannot use the Spanish part of the name.

Okay, I get where you guys are coming from.

But I read the article about people in India dropping their babies from a 50-foot precipice for good luck, and guys...it's their beliefs. You can't go denouncing that as "stupid". It may seem crazy to us, but we're one to talk, we routinely cut stuff off of baby boys' junk, which probably looks totally messed up to some cultures. Just because it's not our beliefs doesn't mean we can go around calling those people stupid.

There is NO excuse for our government's actions, in regard to Katrina; this incident (which we have ALREADY all been made aware - think the temporary housing fiasco) is worthy of significant public outcry.Brown was an idiot and thus, easy to make the 'fall guy' for something MUCH larger, which...well...hope it comes to light and the public awakens...is so very much more wrong.

- I was just saying that, while I know none of us here are xenophobic, no matter how crazy stuff from other cultures may seem, it's still dearly important to those people.

Portray Obama as The President of the US, and people will see him as such.
 
Did you see the pictures I posted in which Obama is portrayed as Jesus?  I don't believe those are accidents.  I believe they're good marketing for a mediocre product.  Subliminal advertising.  Certainly seems to be working.

The Canadian government seems to be in charge of disciplining Canadian children.
 
A father, upset that his daughter has posted "inappropriate" photos of herself on the internet and that she disobeyed his orders to stay off the internet, grounds the girl and tells her that she will not be allowed to attend an upcoming class trip.  The girl reports this to the authorities and the government of Quebec steps in.  The government deems that the punishment is too harsh, and orders that the father's punishment be lifted.
 
By the way, the girl is 12.

Yes, instead of spending time being drunk and looking at the Russian Joke website (knowing what I do about Russians, I just know that this website had something to do with it).LOL

Riders Killed, Injured After Hitting Heads on Overpass While Standing on Bus' Open-Top Upper Deck

Saturday, July 12, 2008

  • WASHINGTON —  District of Columbia police say one man was killed and another was critically injured Friday night when they stood up while riding on the open-topped upper deck of a bus and their heads struck a highway overpass.

The victims, both believed to be in their 20s, were heading to a Washington Nationals baseball game.

The incident occurred around 8:45 p.m. The bus was westbound on the Southeast Freeway and passed beneath the 11th Street overpass.

Police have not identified the victims. Both were taken to local hospitals, where one died.

Shuttle buses typically carry Nationals fans to Nationals Park from RFK Stadium, but the Nationals Express shuttle buses typically are single-deck, closed-top models. It's not clear whether the people aboard the bus were members of a single group. <<=WTF???!Confused 

1.) open-top busses in D.C.? pretty risky; lots of low underpasses - the whole incident sounds simply stupid.
 
2.) WHERE did that last sentence come from???! Was the writer confused?
