Jon Ross, my name is David. Feel free to call me that. The core text is not online; it is an actual hold-in-your-hands book, and I would gladly loan you one of my extra copies. But with one condition: you've got to read it, and then have a sit down conversation about what you thought of it.
Jon Ross, curriculum has been done. I've written it, so have 100s of others. I'll loan you one of the core texts if you'd like to read it.
Mrs Holtz22, I think you and I agree more than not. Like you said, "we are fortunate in Chattanooga'', and those are such true words. The point of my column was to caution against such a superlative - the best town ever - since hard times are harder than ever for some. But you reminded me that some good news among the bad news is important and healthy. Thanks for reminding me of that. And thanks for reading.
