Too often have our schools been corroded with empty minds, unused pencils, and ignorant teachers. Many a student has often encountered their ignorant counterpart: receiving quips like "You do your work?," or the dreaded "You're going to pass that AP exam?" The schools are in dire need of motivation, because the children aren't all to blame. I've come across several teachers within the vicinity of my school in which they've taught their students nothing. Not only does the world history honors teacher of my High School not know about the world, nor history, but she isn't always sober, when she arrives to class.

The state of our education is dwindling: this is evident as students do not read the newspaper, do not pay attention in class, and do not take the initiative to learn on their own. Are their minds prevalent with wandering thoughts like teenage fornication, the local sports team; perhaps it's the substance abuse that is ruling their minds. Nevertheless, when I heard my peer refer to Terry Schiavo as "Vegetable Lady," I felt inevitably compelled to announce a dire request: the ways of learning are moribund, we must assemble our minds and request for intellect to reign once again! I advocate a balance of mind, body, and open-mindedness: a person of brilliance, intolerance, and lethargy is of no use to the world, but a balanced person is bound to live life in splendor.

She was a fucking vegetable and she was a lady. When a man puts the two together, it's just common sense. Goddamn.
