Rob Salkowitz

As the product of a single-sex high-school, I can tell you from experience that it's a mixed bag. But at the end of the day, I think the benefits outweighed the costs - at least in my case (I made up for lost time in college) - and in any case, people should have the choice when it comes to their own kids. This is a stupid place for PC warriors to try to fight it out. There's plenty of room for single-sex and coed schools in the educational system.


I agree Rob. I've never understood the anti-choice agenda of the left when it comes to schooling. I'm unable to think of a kind explanation for that position; I'm afraid there really are many people who would sell out on other people's children for union solidarity and to keep a monopoly on indoctrination. Why black America doesn't take the left to task on this issue is beyond me.
Hey! I just voted for Kucinich. He was the only not-Kerry still standing. I'd rather have voted for Dean, but what can you do. I had front row parking and the whole community center to myself, not counting the volunteers. And I'm ashamed to say I needed help with the touch-screen voting machine :-(

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
