I stopped by the local Menards yesterday just to see what they had. Not much of interest yet. Not surprising considering how cold this spring has been. I expect they will be fully stocked in about two weeks when the gardening season really takes off here. By then I will be in the market for plants to fill out what either hasn't thrived or that I didn't start myself.
Anyone who has read more than a few of my musings over the last couple of years knows I have become a confirmed skeptic on the value of most, maybe 99%, of higher education. Stories like this one confirms my evaluation of the whole scam that is not only college and university education but the way we finance it. I found that story by way of this one and the author makes several excellent points. I love his assessment that a well trained cat can pass most college courses today.
In a spring that has been marked by really weird weather following by an equally weird winter producing yet another 50+ inch snow season, here is a capper.
