To Georgia's teachers

Congratulations on completing - no, make that "surviving" - another year in Georgia's public schools. As some of you know, I have a son and a son-in-law who are high school science teachers. I don't know why they - and you - do it.

On second thought, I do know why. My family's schoolteachers tell me of students and former students who come up to them and say "thank you" - for making them learn, being influential in their lives, giving them discipline, inspiring them to be the best they can be.

Patients should be the focus

From all accounts, reform of the medical care "system" is on the way. As one of the chronically ill, I am a type 1 diabetic, there is one thing that I think any reform needs to address, and that affects everyone - not just me.

All patients should be the "customer" or "consumer,"whatever term is necessary, for medical care. That means that you and your doctor decide what treatment is best for your individual case. In case you didn't know, that isn't how it operates now.

Sharp successes

In the good old days when you were in high school, if you were a problem child or enjoyed skipping school, then after a few warnings you were called to the office and summarily kicked out of school. If your infraction was bad enough, you never returned.

If you were a young lady and became pregnant, you just disappeared. At that time the disappearance was a grand mystery. As we grew older, we realized that in actuality the pregnant young lady had usually been shipped off out of state to some relative's house because of the shame of it ...
