Re: “Looking Ahead: The Electoral Picture

We are all good, Jackson. I have a son in transit flying back today from half a world away (school trip in the United Kingdom for 2 weeks) and I am sure he will be sleeping for several days afterward. Thank you for the correction and I do hope you find those glasses! I often find mine misplaced on my head or hanging from the button seam in the shirt I am wearing.

Re: “Former U of M Provost Ralph Faudree Dies

Dr. Faudree was one of the reasons that I am proud to have earned my first college degree, a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, in 1986, from Memphis State University (now The University of Memphis). At that time, women were rarely seen in the halls of the Math Department, much less in upper division classes. Under Dr. Faudree's leadership, my advisor Dr. Tom Caplinger, shepherded me successfully to degree completion and my admission to the Law School at The University of Memphis.

Re: “The Political Ad Game I: The Doppelgänger Effect

I was a Girl Scout leader for 11 years, and I resent any comparison between my Girl Scouts and politicians. My Girl Scouts were professionals at selling cookies, they were sweet, and they had their moments, as all young ladies will have. I am proud to call many of these young women friends of mine now. Girl Scouts are much too complicated for such simplistic comparisons.

Re: “Knowledge Bowl: 2009-10 Season Preview

In addition to listing SAT/ACT and height-weight statistics, why not include sibling information? My daughter is on the St. Mary's team, and is the second of my three children to compete in Knowledge Bowl. The first was my son, Fred, who is now a sophomore at UTK.

Knowledge Bowl is such a useless thing, however, as we found out with our son who was the team captain for Munford in the 2007-2008 year. It is an image contest that has little (other than money for the overall winners) to do with the actual Quiz Bowl team tournament schedule and state and regional competition points accumulated.
