School in CT preparing for Monday

A message from SOUTH SIDE SCHOOL
Dear South Side Community,
I'm sure that like me, you had a difficult time this weekend keeping your mind off of Friday's horrific tragedy. I would also bet that you too gave your kids a few extra hugs and a bit more of your time than usual. Certainly, this was a very unwelcome reminder about how fragile life is.
Please know that the well-being of South Side students remains my #1 objective. I am confident about our recently revised security measures; nevertheless, I am meeting with my staff first thing Monday morning to review them.
I also want you to know that the faculty will not be discussing Friday's events any more than necessary in order to allay the fears that may be expressed by particular children. It is my firm belief that the best way to get past this difficult time is to return to normal as soon as possible. The only school-wide reference to the tragedy will be a moment of silence that the entire district will observe at 10:00 a.m.
Lastly, I believe that tomorrow and the next several weeks will be the safest time in our school's history due to everyone's heightened awareness and vigilance about security. For that reason, I implore you to send your child/children to school as though it were any other Monday. I feel that there is a great risk of promoting unnecessary and potentially lingering anxiety by allowing students to stay home if they are fearful. Our staff will be watchful for any students who show signs of concern and we are prepared to address such difficulties in a caring a professional manner. Of course, we will contact parents if that happens.
As we continue to struggle privately trying to make sense out of such a heinous act, I believe that something good can in fact come from it: a commitment by all of us to be kinder to one another and to be even more demonstrative of our love for our children.
I wish you and your family peaceful and love-filled holidays.

QQ regarding poll election night predictions

Can anyone tell me if Nate Silvers poll predictions or any others account for the probability of fraud and other shenanigans?


I saw three people walking

Through my neighborhood canvassing for Obama & Chris Murphy. Makes me happy that the democrats ground game is working.

My 8 year old son

Always makes me proud but made me especially proud a few moments ago. In the car on the way to soccer practice we were talking about school today and he told me that he thinks that president Obama will win. I asked him why he thought that and he said that he and a few friends in his class voted for him in class today. So of course I had to dig a little deeper and asked him why he voted for Obama. His response, with a big smile on his face, said that Obama is not a big liar like Mitt Romney- I was pretty stunned on has smart he is since I so not discuss politics with my little ones.

With that said, I'm even more perplexed. How come an 8 year old boy can figure this out when many adults can't.

Bush vs Romney

Funny thing my wife said to me earlier regarding Romney. She was saying how bad of a candidate she thought he was and how slimy he was since he easily changed his position on every issue.

Then she stated that if it was a choice that if she had to choose between Bush or Romney that she would pick Bush.

I was stumped- obviously I would never have picked either however if I were forced to pick one or the other I had no idea which one I would choose .

If you were forced with that choice , who would your choice be? Which one is truly the lesser of two evils?

I'm stumped.

Yea, we're back

Testing, testing
