Columnist fail

You might have noted that there was no live blog from the Kimball High School campus as President Obama addressed the nation's students.

My apologies, as I seem to have come down with a case of strep throat for the second time in a month.

However, I'm pleased to say that, from my own reading of the speech's transcript, that it was about as admirable — if not boring — of an address that the president could have given to students.

Sad thing is, the inspirational exhortation will likely mean very little if the students aren't raised in an environment — that includes parents and teachers — that sets academic achievement as something that's important, expected and worked toward.
