Dear Mimsy,

I like your reasoning. I, as well, have always thought that the kind of
education we promote is more like the "real world" than traditional
classrooms, even though we are always questioned (attacked?) with, "Whatever
will the children do when they are confronted with the Real World?"

Go well,

ps - I favor the short form, as well!
