Good morning.

I’m on the 7:30AM, rear quiet car. I have to tell you about yesterday. Yesterday, we had the Georgetown Elementary School (3rd Annual) Science Fair. We had thirty projects displayed, but up to ninety children participated. Parents were engaged and asking questions about teaching science and fostering discovery. As the GT-PTA resident “Science Guy” this was my baby. It was awesome. KG-Fifth Grade.

My guys did a project on paper airplanes. It was their design, their production, their slides. I was more of a resource and an umpire than anything else.  Outstanding work. Other parents came to me telling me similar stories of their children’s hard work. I love it.

Well, enough about my excitement.

Jeb Bush is here. The former Governor of Florida is contemplating his run for the White House as the suburbs whiz by. He is a little concerned about the attitude of his constituents as well as the nation. There is a general attitude that government is useless, perpetuated by much of the rhetoric of the party to which he is affiliated. Now with that Princeton study out, clearly identifying how the United States has become an oligarchy, it’s no wonder a future leader would even consider a run for government office. He stares out the window, blankly, as the scenery goes by.

Also here are Cruella de Ville, Donald Sutherland, Gloria Steinem, and George Plimpton with a fedora. All are armed.

Happy Thursday. Safe travels.
