The Facebook Effect: Melanie

One of our kitties is very sick and likely will not live many more days, in spite of our efforts. My daughter -  a nearly straight-A student - wanted to spend some time with her kitty before she dies. That means she will be missing school tomorrow, bringing her to 8 days missed: 5 days for her volunteer service trip to Haiti, 2 days from illness, and tomorrow. We'll see how the rest of the year goes, but I find it intriguing (and I'm appalled) that we should even have to consider the short-sighted arrogance of Nebraska officials who think they know better about the well-being of my children. Correction - ... of Nebraska officials who are putting forward a false pretense of caring about the well-being of our children, but who are really attempting to standardize not only our children's education, but our family life - under the law - for their own benefit.
