Sweet Dreams Kitty

How I wish I had a camera...

I've just discovered that if I sing to the cat, she'll sing back. Example:

Me: Sweet dreams, baby. Sweet dreams, baby.
Luckie: Meow!
Me: Sweet dreams, baby. How long must I dream?
Luckie: Meow!
Me: Dream baby got me dreamin' sweet dreams, whole day through.
Luckie: Meow!
Me: Dream baby got me dreamin' sweet dreams, night time too.
Luckie: Meow.

Very plaintive meows, BTW. I don't think she hates the singing (unlike say, when I played the flute around her), she thinks I'm meowing at her or something maybe.

High School Diplomas

A new report came out showing that only 56% of Georgia high school students graduate with a diploma. Boy is *that* depressing! Not surprising, but depressing!

Find how your state did here. The map tool shows that the City of Atlanta at *under* 50%. My home town is 80-90%... although poor (literally) Lawrence, next door, is less than 50%. Hmmm.

I don't agree with the assumption that everybody should go to college, because I think there are different directions for different people, but I do think getting through high school is pretty important.
