Slashdot has an interview up with Chris Lehmann, a good friend of mine that teaches High School in New York. Chris somehow has managed to marry hyper-energy, geekiness, and a Stand By Me teaching attitude to make Beacon a great example of how public school can still work. Chris rocks. You should tell him so.
Speaking of High School newspapers and Matt's impending reunion, a friend of mine sent me to highschoolalumni.com a while back. As a result of some email I got from someone there, I found classmates.com which links to a high school bulletin board on delphi.com. Now I'm getting email left and right from people I haven't seen in 18-20 years, and it's a little freaky. The best so far was from my freshman year biology lab partner. She was totally the Roller Disco Queen at Skate City, and even had a Linda Blair-esque Roller Boogie picture in the yearbook. We didn't really know each other, so when she said "I too, am very fuzzy on high school days. It just seems like a life time ago, but I do remember you well", I took it as a compliment. It may seem silly, but I would hate to be forgettable. You see, Matt? You don't *have* to go back, you can interact with all the people you don't want to see again from the comfort of your own home.
