Bomgar considered irrelevant until proven educated

April 6, 2013

I do not know Joel Bomgar personally.
Therefore, I am in no place to gush over his credentials other than what is already public.
This week, Bomgar’s nomination to the State Board of Education was rejected by the state Senate, mostly on the grounds that the successful businessman does not have a background in public education.

Summerall: Never enough books

April 6, 2013

Yesterday most of the people in my house went to Starkville to see “The Host” a movie based on the book by Stephanie Myers. There are a lot of books in my house by this particular author. None of them are mine since the idea of sparkly vampires makes me nauseous. Aliens aren’t high on my list either so the Stephanie Myers books aren’t in my room. I can’t complain too much though, her novels had all three of my kids reading for the pleasure of it. A wonderful accomplishment.

“Duress” suspenseful, entirely West Point

April 3, 2013

It seems strange to think about what would happen if a deranged sociopath was on the loose in Clay County.
