Yes, August in LA is a vision of Hell. School has occupied me like a soldier in the trenches of Verdun. The assault is not so much from student hostility, but from the School Board and their new proposal to break up and give away public education to Charter groups.

I'm glad to hear that home schoolers are not all gun toting Baptists.

Sorry we missed you too. No, there are lots of homeschoolers that don't have guns and even teach evolution, even in NC!
