But if I were a company like Google, I wouldn't necessarily wait for people to have degrees before trying to hire them.
Fr. Rutler commenting on kindergarten. I like Fr. Rutler, and I've been to his church which is near where I work. Like the good Father, I also preferred the company of adults when I was a child, and learned far more from the wide world than in school. Also, I do miss NYC for the kids, in that I think it's the most intellectually stimulating place in the world to be -- around all those =people=. But kids also need space, and I'm happy to have them running around in the yard and harassing the wildlife. Harrass the chipmunks, my darlings. Damn rodents eating our plants.
