A Lesson in Human Error

Everyone makes mistakes — even surgeons have been known to cut off the wrong limb from time to time — but my experiences with the local medical facility go well beyond acceptable human error. As a matter of fact, I venture to say you will not believe me. If you were watching these events play out on a sitcom you would say ridiculous, this never happens.¬†

Teachers & Guns (in Texas)

I was ready to go off on this whole thing that is happening in Harrold, TX.,¬†with teachers being allowed to carry guns in the classroom. I mean, my brain was about to explode with all the scenarios playing out. As a former middle school teacher there have been times I would have liked to smack a kid upside the head but truly don’t think I ever wanted to actually shoot one of them (OK, maybe just one but that was when I was a sub). Now the students’ parents? Different story.
