    Well blunder I don’t think a cold qualifies as a disease but point taken.

    Mr. Brown, I agree with all of the above mentioned points. One question I don’t quite know if you are a HS or College teacher. If you are a HS or below educator you may want to delted my entries as my blog is rated NC-17, it’s not pornographic, it’s just that I have a potty mouth at time.

    Greetings Wang, and welcome to my blog. I delete absolutely NO entries here. Feel free to comment whenever you like, and I’ll check out your blog as well (I’m a huge chess enthusiast.) By the way, I work in a college now, but I used to teach six years of high school.

Soulquarian Quote of the Day

"There is no hip hop manual for growing old...The 22-year-old college grad who used to love the Roots in 1994 never left. He’s just 40 now and has a wife and kids and doesn’t feel like spending all night at a club."
