A Short Note

Great news here at the high school: we shut down unlimited internet access. Now kids won't be able to just goof around when they're supposed to be working on their reading, math, etc. However, as I learned soon after, the kids find other ways to avoid work. This document is an example of what they'll do when bored. The student was not prompted to do this, it wasn't for any assignment, and didn't seem to be done with any sense of irony. FYI, Inglewood is a city in L.A. about 100 miles from here (to the west of Compton) that some of the kids seem to want to go to and live the life of a pimp/gangbanger. It's a little more upscale from Compton as it's closer to LAX, but still a place where all the nice post-WWII homes have bars on the windows. And two of my grandparents are buried there (Mom tells me that when she was young, her mom told her that someday they'd move to Inglewood "if we can afford it").

Ah, those good old "police officers of my ass." They don't have a great job, but somebody's got to do it.

Inglewood, land of my birth. I also have two grandparents buried there, but my parents haven't threatened to move back there for a while.
