If you work for a school district, maybe you can verify what I heard re textbooks. If one wants to download a regular book rather than a hard copy,
the cost is much cheaper. Now, in the case of gr1-12 textbooks, it would seem that all a students textbooks and workbooks could be put on an
electronic reader for much less money to save taxpayer dollars.
But...not everyone wants to sacrifice apparently, as a $100 calculus book would still be $100 downloaded to a e-reader. Textbook publishers don't
want to sacrifice!

When I was a young girl, one of the summer high points was to sit on the floor in front of the black&white tv along with my sisters, until late into
those sultry nights, watching all those beautiful, charming young women parade elegantly across stage in evening dress and swim suit, vying for a
title and tiara in that great American ritual.....the beauty pageant.
Such beauty, such charm, such poise, such grace! We watched, enthralled, in awe. Then came the part of the pageant when the contestants would have to
give a short impromptu speech. .....
....we would all be rofloao! Even to the mind of an 11 year old girl, their answers to the prompt
were so shallow, canned, and vapid, that I stereotypically concluded one could have beauty or brains, but not both!
Sarah Palin is our national consummate American beauty pageant contestant. Sure there have been contestants who have gone on into careers in
journalism, but Sarah chose politics, and politics chose her. I no longer roflmao, but when she speaks, that old stereotypical thought comes to mind
I wonder, if we gave her a title and tiara, would she go away?
