Does Ed Kranz have a point to make? If so, what is it?

--Ed Taft

PS: The Flynn effect is well documented and well known. Look it up in
any Psychometrics textbook.

Ed Kranz shared with us this quotation, which I forwarded to my husband:

>"War is God's way of teaching Americans geography."
>         Ambrose Bierce, (1842-1914)

And my husband responds:

>My God, what do we do for sex education!?

Comment:        Re: SHK 13.0855 Re: Education

Dear Mr. Kranz:

I'm flattered. Of all the bad English and multipage diatribes I've read
on this list, you remember my institution as well as my two month old
misspelling. A more charitable disposition might attribute it to a
careless regression to pre eighteenth century spelling by a
renaissance/medievalist.  You obviously have some other problem with me.
Call me anything you like, but have the courage to do it directly, or go
back to proofreading my posts to support whatever grudge you're
harboring. Or better yet, do something more useful with your dictionary.
