Blame the ever-elusive "They"....

This afternoon I was forced to suffer through a fearmongering rant about the ever-elusive "THEY" that are going to take our businesses, guns, etc. at the Post Office.

I really ONLY wanted to buy stamps, but this old redneck was tying up the line in front of me with his ignorant tirade. It took all I had to bite my tongue and just get my stamps. The postmaster, realizing that I was not enjoying this conversation unlike the other guy in the Hoveround with the NRA stickers all over it, went ahead and took my money for the stamps out of turn and sent me on my way. I nearly headed back in to...enlighten them with a silver tongue...when I heard the Hoveround guy say, "He's got one a 'em there Obamanation stickers in his car!", but I decided that an intellectual argument from a guy with a fauxhawk, earrings, a tattoo, and wearing a "The Darkness" tee might be too much for them. I realize more by the day how much I am not like those around me. How did the ignorant get to be so many and so vocal?

Touching bases....

I am wrapping things up with my student teaching. I have just over a week of student teaching left. I am eager to get to commencement and even more eager to begin looking for jobs for next fall. If anyone reads this and knows of any Social Studies positions opening up...I am seeking one. I'll toss more up here later.

I just added my resume as a Google Site. Here is the link: Frederick B. Gerwig Resume Page

On a personal note...

I have not tossed any words up here for a while, but my intention was always to keep this blog alive even after the course I created it for was over. We'll see...maybe I'll toss worthy words up here later.
