Just came across your blog, and am enjoying it. Only one thing: capital letters DO have meaning and importance.

I believe the Bill of Rights are one of the most beautiful American creations.

chris- thanks for the kind words- your point is taken and duly noted. i never have been one to be bothered with handwriting- mine is atrocious. my brain tends to work faster than i write usually. same now with typing- i am not really that adept and i haven't been bothered by finding the shift key.

cyprus- i agree.

One of my favorite parts of the school year is the Constitution with my 8th graders, I spend at least two weeks on it.
