:but it gets them to think and to write.

It almost seems that schools are getting to the point where they are scared of getting sued for making a student think more so than an animal bite. If anyone disbelieves this, just look at how readily studets are "pushed" along through schools without ever learning how to properly communicate via the written medium. Heck, I see this at the graduatinge Undergraduate on the college level every day! I guess I'm just cynical this early in the morning.

Anyway Mike, How's it beeg going? We try to give a few hatchlings to schools every year locally, but it is often hard (=time consuming) finding someone to take them here. We end up just giving up. My sister is a Junior High teacher, but she is so scared of "anything alive" that it's pointless trying to get her class set-up as a herpers dominion. Oh, well.

I' talk to you later--Kasi's whinin that I'm not giving her enough attention. How's the Prairies?
