Educational Rot

Over thirty years ago I was talking to a teacher in Savannah, GA about the state of education then. She said she had recently received a note from her daughter's 2nd grade teacher stating that her child had a 'speech impediment'. Her daughter pronounced that thing you open to let your guests inside a 'door' and that thing the carpet lays on, the 'floor'. Her teacher said it was 'do' and flo'.
What Biden fails to say when talking about how much better a shotgun is than an AR-15 is the fact that a shotgun is much longer and has more recoil than the -15. He also said, in another interview, that he told his wife to fire two shots from a double barreled shotgun to scare intruders away. Fact: It takes much longer to reload a shotgun than an AR-15. Also, good luck trying to maneuver a long barreled shotgun in a narrow hallway.

Everyone is singing the praises of the Red Cross, but, like you said, it is the small groups who step up and deliver. What many people don't know or recognize is that The Salvation Army is usually one of the first organizations to respond to disasters, offering physical and spiritual comfort.
Does anyone remember Weird Al's "Frank's ten thousand inch TV?
To continue the previous post: They are active in working to repair the damages to that earthquake-ravaged country. One of our mottoes has been "Heart to God, hand to man". The Salvation Army lives by that credo.
The Red Cross does fine work, but for more "bang for the buck", consider donating to The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army has been on the scene more many disasters, offering material aid and comfort to those who have suffered in these disasters. The red kettle you see around Christmastime is to help those who may not have a Christmas dinner or gifts for their children. The Salvation Army has been there well before the Red Cross at disasters, many times before the winds have died down. When Katrina struck, our Officers (ministers) were deployed from all over. Volunteers also went as volunteers to man the canteens, offering food and supplies, as well as helping with the cleanup afterward. The Salvation Army is still working in Haiti.
