notes on government, sports and popular culture
Interesting letter to the editor
from Nora Anderson, a graduate of Northwest Guilford:
"In high school, I was never suspended, I actively participated in school clubs and I now attend one of the top universities in the country.....
"...I felt as though the vast majority of my teachers were ridulously unintelligent. If I had a dime for every time I thought, 'I could teach this class better than this teacher is,' I could buy myself a very nice dinner at Lucky 32.
"During my senior year, I worked in my school's office, which only led me to believe that it was not only the teachers who lacked intelligence......I realized that the administration pool could use a little chlorine.
"Also during my senior year, I became a virtual role model for a group of underclassmen. They respected me because I treated them as intelligent individuals and never talked down to them."
I deeply regret our region's loss of this brilliant mind.
