I am sure the competition around the world has 14 snow days a year.It is this attitude of protecting are dear little Johnnie is why the world is kicking our ass.

Yes, I'm sure our lagging performance against other countries can rightly be attributed to weather-related, school opening delays. I don't know about your kids, but mine, instead of walking headlong into traffic in order to get to the bus stop because of a lack of properly cleared sidewalks, went to the YMCA instead. So, while your kid was out there toughening up by standing in the cold, the Delinquents were toughening up in the gym so that they can literally kick the world's ass.

Our lagging performance has everything to do with the idiots running Henrdon Elementary. Lots of for sale signs going up this spring as a result! Nice job HE! I see Brenda Wichman was nice enough to perpetuate the whine about the poor kiddies having to stand and walk on snow at the bus stop or on their way to school! OH THE HORROR! Man some parents are freakin...well, you know.
