When I was in 7th grade I was pondering what the newest Terrahawks and
Thunderbirds episode would be and what I was going to do if the Vietnam "conflict"
went on past when I graduated high school in 1974. The only "pooters" we had then
were some networked (if you can call it that) typing equipment and teletype
terminals in the business classes.

High school has it's palce, just as college does. Of course if you look at the
high schools and many colleges now you'd have to wonder why they eeven bother
going to any classes other than home room for attendance check in.
