Memories

I was going through some old files, straightening some things up, when I came across some of my old Cal Poly "Student Grade Reports." It's been nearly a decade since I graduated, and I've forgotten many of these classes I was required to take.

Interestingly enough, I came across my final grade report -- I had a 3.394 GPA for the quarter that I graduated. Got a B in Agriculture and American life -- a class I actually remember. Only at an AG school do you take "field trips" to the Swine Unit. It was a great class. After a field trip to an on-campus orange orchard, the instructor directied us to grab all the oranges we could carry. I ate oranges for a week.

Curiously enough, my highest grade that quarter was an "A" in Sociology 315: "Race Relations." I don't remember a thing about that class. I don't remember who the instructor was, what time of day it was or anything else about it.

I seem to have gotten through the experience without any permanent scars.

I'm sure I took the class because it was a general education requirement, but to paraphrase an old saying: "Everything I ever needed to know about race relations, I learned in kindergarten."

Unlike many "civil rights" leaders nowadays -- I judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Why, one must ask, was the suit against Biden's student debt wipe “inevitable”?

Was it because the Biden admin is in flagrant violation of the law, and because *everyone* in America knows it?

Not in Waldman’s view, apparently. | @charlescwcooke
